To better make information about your business, product(s), and/or service(s) available to procurement officers, you MUST be registered in the Dynamic Small Business Search (DSBS). The DSBS is a database of companies with whom the government can contract, and includes information about any set-aside contracts for which the company is eligible (e.g., HUBZone, 8(a), WOSB, VOSB, etc.). Companies in the DSBS are more visible to the government and to procurement officers searching for small businesses that meet specific contracting goals.
Think of your company DSBS as a marketing tool. Your DSBS profile:
- Confirms your eligibility for small business set asides
- Makes clear that your business is small and/or owned by a minority group
- Gives information about your company to prime vendors looking for subcontractors
Agents and officers looking for specific types of companies can use the DSBS to identify profiles in the following socio-economic categories:
- Woman-Owned Small Business
- Veteran-Owned Small Business
- Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business
Your DSBS profile – which is searchable by keyword, among other search options – includes information about applicable NAICS Codes; a brief description of your company, product(s), and/or service(s); and information about any past performance you’ve had.
The bottom line – the DSBS is the yellow pages for procurement officers, and you want your business listed.
We help our clients complete a DSBS profile, register in the System for Award Management, and put in place the tools they need to succeed as government contractors.
