Picture this. You have an opportunity that requires you to find a teaming partner to be competitive. You find a potential partner with the right small business certification and NAICS code, but they do not have the specific capability or skill set for the opportunity. You have two options:

  1. You can team with them anyways and hope for the best, or
  2. You can start your search again, more narrowly, but you may not have much time.

In a competitive industry where time is not a luxury, you need to find qualified teaming partners quickly.

To help you find and be found by government contractors for partnership opportunities, we have expanded our Keyword Search tool. You can now use the Keyword Search tool in the Build My Team module.

What does this mean for you?

When you “Post a Job” in Build My Team, you can add requirements like NAICS codes, certifications, or vehicles, among other criteria including keywords. Here is an example:

You would like to go after an advertising opportunity that focuses on social media. You can create a job post with the relevant NAICS code. In this case, let’s use 541890 – Other Services Related to Advertising. To narrow down your search, you can enter the keyword “social media” and BC2Match will search members and return matches. After you review the results, you can contact each contractor directly to start a discussion.

How can BC2Match members be found?

BC2Match uses 12 criteria to match members with opportunities. The same criteria are also used when members are searching for qualified partners. BC2Match members need to fill out the Keyword criteria for two reasons:

  1. This helps BC2Match focus on unique federal, state, and local opportunities
  2. BC2Match members will show up in the results when another member is searching for a partner with specific requirements.

A strong team is a key factor to winning contracts. Sign up for a free 30-day trial and start finding new opportunities and potential teaming partners when you enter your NAICS codes and Keywords as well as other criteria.
