SBA Tools for Marketing & Subcontracting

SBA Tools for Marketing & Subcontracting

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 10:00am to 11:00am

Did you know you can update your SBA profile in the Dynamic Small Business Search (DSBS) without clicking through all the pages in SAM?

When registering in the System for Award Management (SAM) on, a small business has the opportunity to set up its Small Business Administration (SBA) Profile. The profile allows the business to add keywords and a short capability narrative. This system is called ProNet and this webinar will show you how to register for that system to allow you to update your profile without going through SAM. Another tool available when you register in the SBA General Login System (GLS) is SubNet. SubNet is a subcontracting network where prime contractors can post advertisements looking for subcontractors on specific solicitations. Small businesses can also advertise their interest in a solicitation to notify primes.

During this webinar, you will learn how to register in the SBA general login system as well as register for ProNet and SubNet.

You Will Learn How To:

  • Create an account in the SBA General Login System
  • Request access to ProNet and SubNet
  • Search ProNet for market research
  • Search SubNet for opportunities
  • Advertise for subcontracting opportunities
