This page allows you to perform a simple broad search for opportunities by entering keyword(s) (terms or phrases) separated by commas. To find a specific opportunity you can enter its Solicitation Number, Reference Number or a Source ID code.

Simple Search

In the text box provided, enter the keyword(s), phrases, or GSIN codes separated by commas necessary to find the opportunities you wish to find. You can use one of the search operators. Click on Searching for Character Strings for detailed information on search operators.

Note Some buying organizations do not use GSINs. For this reason we strongly advise you to begin to use keywords in all of your searches and/or opportunity matching profile. It is no longer advisable to rely solely on GSINs for your search criteria.

If desired, you can change the maximum number of results to be displayed on your screen. By default, ten notices will be displayed. Change the Maximum number of results to the number you wish to display. Click the Search button located to the left of the "Select Maximum number of results per page" field to execute the simple search.
