How do I find federal business opportunities using Stratvocate?

There are actually two means to find federal business opportunities - first is via a subscription to ccInsight, where users can view opportunities organized by customer, classification code or NAICS code, and receive tailored daily email alerts of new postings. It's just one of the many features offered by ccInsight. Second, users can search for opportunities via the Find Opportunities page, which offers a simple search engine into the fedbizopps data the government posts daily. This is a free service available to everyone - no registration is required. For those who wish to use more advanced features, such as saving search criteria to re-run at a later time, or to enter an opportunity into our Opportunity Management System, it's still free, but registration is required. If you are interested in registering, contact us, and we will set that up for you.
