Getting Started with NGA:

  1. Register your company in the System for Award Management. All businesses, whether large of small, must be registered in SAM to do business with the federal government.
  2. Complete your SAM Small Business Profile for Dynamic Small Business Search. When a small business registers in SAM, there is an opportunity to fill out a small business profile to populate DSBS. NGA uses DSBS to research small businesses in our market.
  3. Research NGA. Know our mission, what we buy and how your company's products and services can contribute.
  4. Register with Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) and the Acquisition Resource Center (ARC) 2.0 for the latest business opportunity announcements from NGA.

Be sure to take advantage of  advance search features to stay on top of NGA's Business Opportunity Notices, Sources Sought announcements, Requests for Information, and Request for Proposal. Your thoughtful responses to these notices help us understand your capabilities and make more informed decisions on our acquisitions.

Meeting with NGA's Small Business Office: NGA is currently limited in our ability to meet directly with companies. The best way for us to know your capabilities through a robust profile in DSBS and GSM, and through your targeted responses to our FBO and ARC announcements (see getting started, above). If you need specific assistance on an existing contract, please do not hesitate to contact us via email:
