GSA goes to Eagle Eye for contract, grant data

FedBizOpps notice

The General Services Administration intends to issue a sole-sourcing purchase order to Eagle Eye Publishers for custom programming services as the agency works to put federal contract and grant information into an easily searchable public database.

GSA wants advice on developing the database and getting analyzed sets of the information from fiscal 2000 to 2007 and updates in 2008, according to a Federal Business Opportunities notice posted July 25.

Eagle Eye is the only company able to provide software with acquisition and grants data with existing documentation for 2000 to 2006 and available 2007 data, the notice states.

The launch of a government Web site that enables searches for contracts and grants is scheduled for next month. GSA said the site will be similar to OMB Watch’s FedSpending.org.

The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act, passed in 2006, directs the Office of Management and Budget to develop a single searchable Web site that is free to the public. The site must include information about each award, including who received the award, the amount it is worth and what agency awarded it.

The notice states that it is not a request for competitive quotes.
