Market Research Utilizing the Dynamic Small Business Search Tool

Market Research Utilizing the Dynamic Small Business Search Tool

Tuesday, August 3, 2021 10:00am to 11:00am


The DSBS is an invaluable tool for small businesses interested in doing business with the Federal government.

The Dynamic Small Business Search (DSBS) is a public system run by the SBA, that Collects and displays Small Business Profiles registered in SAM.Gov (System for Award Management) for the Federal Procurement marketplace.

Government procurement officers utilize DSBS to search for small businesses to be able to “Set-Aside” procurements for small businesses. Prime contractors and other small businesses use DSBS to look for subcontractors, teaming partners, etc.

This webinar covers how small businesses in the Federal procurement marketplace can utilize the DSBS to improve or expand their market research capabilities and ensure their business profile is effective in connecting with government buyers. Some of the topics covered include:

  • How to ensure your information is up to date in the DSBS tool
  • How to search and compare your information to other similar businesses
  • Learn the various search parameters
  • How to create a search profile
