SBA Presidential Innovation Fellows Launch Innovative Online Contracting System: RFP-EZ
The U.S. Small Business Administration, in
conjunction with the White House’s Presidential Innovation Fellows,
today launched a “beta” (pilot) version of RFP-EZ, a new online
marketplace that streamlines the government
contracting process, making it simpler for small businesses to find and
bid on low-dollar contracts from federal agencies.
The new program allows the government to source
low-cost, high-impact solutions from innovative tech companies. A
limited number of low-dollar contracts through RFP-EZ are now
. If successful, the pilot will be expanded to include more contracts for a more diverse group of innovative startups.
“The federal government gets access to the most
innovative startups, helping us lower costs and get more bang for the
dollars we spend,” said Sean Greene, SBA’s Associate Administrator for
Investment and Innovation. “The small businesses
get access to the largest customer in the world. It’s a win-win.”
RFP-EZ also will enable the federal government to secure better and less
expensive products and services, saving taxpayer dollars and improving
“The government procurement process can be
complicated and intimidating, but the streamlined process helps save
significant amounts of time for all types of business, especially
high-growth startups,” said Regional Administrator Natalia
Olson-Urtecho. “RFP-EZ represents a unique opportunity for innovative
startups in the Mid-Atlantic region and across the nation to easily
access the federal government marketplace and, in turn, help fuel job
growth throughout the country.”
By simply creating a company profile on the beta
site, each small business can search and bid for contracts relevant to
its skill set. A small business can easily search for an opportunity,
see a statement of work, and bid all within the
RFP-EZ web interface.
The Presidential Innovation Fellows program
launched in August 2012, pairs top innovators from the private sector,
non-profits and academia with top innovators in government to
collaborate on solutions that aim to deliver significant results.
RFP-EZ is the first of five high-impact projects assigned to the
fellows aimed at supporting entrepreneurs, small businesses and the
economy, while significantly improving how the Federal Government serves
the American people.
The fellows who were picked to work with SBA and
BusinessUSA to develop RFP-EZ were Clay Johnson, best-selling author,
open government technologist and entrepreneur from Washington, DC; Jed
Wood, interaction designer, web developer, and
entrepreneur from Chicago, IL, and Adam Becker, web developer and
co-founder of civic engagement startup GovHub from Oakland, CA.
The other Presidential Innovation Fellow projects
included: MyGov, Open Data Initiatives, Blue Button for America and The
20% Initiative. To learn more about the fellowship and the projects,

to make it easier for small businesses and entrepreneurs to access
