This site is a great place to see which agencies are spending money in which NAICS and with which companies. In general, it’s a great way to learn where a lot (but not all) of your tax dollars go. In specific, you can actually search by agency, office, contractor, NAICS, location, fiscal year, etc and get some decent intel on contracts. You can even download the Excel versions and slice and dice the data too. It’s not as easy to use as some tools, but then again, it’s free.
I plan to do a screencast at some point to help others navigate it. By the way, to call me out on that promise, if you read this before I post the screencast, send me an email at Kevin@contractingofficerpodcast.com and ask me when I’m going to do the FAR Site screencast
