The Federal Procurement Data System Next Generation (FPDS-NG) is the U.S. Government's primary repository of transaction data for agency contracts subject to the reporting criteria specified by the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). It is also a key resource for many free and fee-based third-party aggregators of government contracting data.

Information To Win™: FPDS-NG helps participants understand what data exists in FPDS-NG and how it can be used to positively impact marketing, business development and capture activities. When used as a driver for opportunity and relationship development, the information presented will prepare attendees to access, collect and exploit FPDS-NG information to improve their organization’s situational awareness of current and prospective customers, competitors, partners and opportunities.

The following Information To Win™ FPDS-NG programs are available as in-person workshops and webinars. Each session limited to ten (10) participants.
