How long does it take to start receiving bid matches in my email?

When you submit your keywords and other search criteria on the application form, it is thoroughly reviewed and fine-tuned by knowledgeable people (not computers!) with 20 years of experience.  Common keyword misspellings and pluralizations, wildcards, proximity statements, exclude statements, and other Boolean logic operators are added to your search profiles to produce the most relevant results possible. This effort takes time for our system search experts to get it just right. Please be patient after you submit your application.  It could take several days.

Which government agencies does it search?

Bid Match searches federal, state, and local government websites.  There are about 1500 different websites across the United States.

Can I limit my search?

Yes. You can limit your search geographically by State to only include the states you want to search.  Additionally, you can limit it to just include state/local bids or just Federal.

Can multiple people from my company get the daily email?

Yes.  We can add as many recipients from your company as you’d like to your subscription for no additional cost.  Each will receive the daily email.

What if I want to update my search criteria?

Contact your PTAC Counselor any time to make changes to your bid match search criteria.  PTAC wants your bids to be relevant to what you do!  We also encourage you to send us bids you may have found from other sources so we can further enhance your profile and/or the sites our Bid Match searches.
