What’s The Dollar Value of Your Parts?

PartsBase Government Data deploys “Reverse Shopping Cart” Technology.  We are all familiar with items we picked up and placed in the cart.  In other words, we know what contracts we won.  But do we track what we missed or about which we didn’t know?  This is where your new tool comes in handy.  Are you 100% certain the NSN can only be purchased from you?  Are you sure you knew about every opportunity, bid it and successfully won it? Plug in your company and view:

  • Your recent awards
  • Recent actions for your NSNs awarded to others
  • Your company’s un-bid solicitations
  • Open solicitations for your company along with ALL whom can bid
  • ALL awards to other companies for your NSNs

And

  • The historical dollar value of your NSNs displayed with your share of the contracting dollars. What this means is that you can quickly find out that your parts are worth ‘X’ and your share is worth ‘Y’.

PartsBase Government Data has been listening to your suggestions and requests and we built this technology because you asked for it.  Your service simply became smarter and more efficient – all of this is included in your membership.  Would you like to see how it works? Login to PartsBase Government Data or ask us for your free trial.

Knowledge, Experience and Success.

We believe knowledge and experience are inextricably tied to success. What if you knew about the spares procurement trends for all your NSNs or those related a a weapon system you support? Look at the enclosed graphic. It represents action counts and action dollar amounts by year spent on procuring spares for NSNs where AH-64 is in the technical characteristics. We used PartsBase Government Data to ID the NSNs and batch all the relevant commodity data. We invite you to test for yourself.

Advanced and Additional PartsBase Government Data Search Capabilities

PartsBase Government Data deploys feature enhancements to three tools available to our members. Global Search, BSM Expired Search and Historical Solicitations search were modified for the inclusion of searching and finding by CAGE Code.

Global Search enables searching and finding any open DoD solicitation without the use of saved searches, BSM Expired search which is a mechanism to search for all BSM solicitations past the expiration but still available to bid and Historical Solicitations search which facilitates finding and researching ALL historical DoD solicitations.

These features were deployed over the last few months and were just enhanced to include searching by company or CAGE code.

Here they are in action:

PartsBase Government Data – A New Day

Over the last few months, we published several posts about PartsBase Government Data.  The first was titled “Got PartsBase Government Data?”  Then a couple or posts about “Why PartsBase Government Data” and “The Importance of Planning and Researching” followed by “The Benefits of PartsBase Government Data” and an invitation to “Come by and Meet PartsBase Government Data.

Most recently, as we are coming up on our 6th birthday, “PartsBase Government Data Inc – Happy 6th Birthday (almost)” was intended to provide an abbreviated version of our journey over the last 6 years working with you and companies such as yours.  I wanted to talk about why we started the business, where we came from, what our goals were and where we came up short.  I felt this was a point worth discussing because all things being equal, and despite our successes, it was never a smooth ride and at times shook almost violently.  We did persevere and used the lessons learned to provide our members with the tools required and requested to help in navigating the maze of researching and doing business with the US Department of Defense. The lessons learned were invaluable and allowed me to come a long way in helping PartsBase Government Data grow to 800 or so members by 2013 and climbing above 2500 to date.

The aforementioned post was received very well and very much liked by our members as we also published the story on our blog.  The traffic which was generated was also tremendous from members and soon to be members alike.  I then decided to write this piece to further elaborate on our capabilities and our continued desire to help our members.  I understand that this is a business but I also understand that without a clearly defined and stated goal or mission, PartsBase Government Data would be eternally coasting.  One of the lessons from the beginning was to build a better toolbox into which better a better suite of tools reside.

Merriam Webster defines a tool as “a means to an end”.   Think of it this way, a hammer is a great tool which provides a more efficient way to drive nails.  A screw driver is also a tool used to turn screws.  You can accomplish both tasks without using the hammer or the screw driver but why would you?  I remember when I was 16 years old and had to mow the lawn as part of a deal I made with my dad to borrow his car.  I waited until the last minute and found out that the mower didn’t start.  Naturally, if I wanted to borrow the car to go out that night, I had to honor my commitment and get the job done….so I did….with a weed wacker.  The experience wasn’t fun, took almost 2 hours and while I got to use the car, it cost more than I had planned for.

So rather than build just a great tool, PartsBase Government Data designed a better toolbox and deployed an unparalleled suite of tools to go into it.  Many of our products and features were born from requests by our members, while others were the natural progression of things.  Many of the members that use PartsBase Government Data share similar prior experiences.  They spent countless hours going from one DoD procurement gate to another.  They found that none of the search mechanisms look, feel or work like the site they just visited.  They searched for FSC – or – CAGE – or – NSN .  They were presented with pages of results into which they have to click, read and close.  Once they identify potential new opportunities, they have to print the pages and once they had found enough, they started researching past procurement if the information they were seeking was not yet archived.  They used to have access to WebFLIS for basic NSN information but that was deprecated last year. Then when all this was done, repeat on another site.

So I decided to take this opportunity to talk about the PartsBase Government Data toolbox some of the tools our members have access to and use in their daily business.

The first one is Contract Bidding which is our bidmatching suite of products.  This tool was redesigned from the ground up and with you in mind.  Contract Bidding allows you to cast a wide net or be as specific as you want when finding bidding opportunities.  Create your saved searches by NSN, Part Number, CAGE, FSC and Keyword.  Further narrow your searches prior to saving by compounding onto them indicators such as set-asides, inspection, dollar value and more.  Basically we give you the option to match broad and then filter the results or to narrow you searches and only get delivered what you’re seeking.

Imagine having the ability to create a saved search for all your suppliers.  Another which allows you to look at products sought which match your shop’s capabilities but only if the DoD owns the technical documents or drawings.  A third where only FSC 4730 for example is being sought, with with AMSC of G – all at the same time with separate notification for each and with available data export.

2-a_new_day

Imagine being able, while looking at matches from your saved searches, to see with each opportunity relevant vendors stocking the parts, forecast information, AEL cross reference, full FLIS information and full procurement history.  Additionally, if and when you need to change your saved searches, you can do it yourself and have the results immediately available without having to send in a request and wait 24-48 hours to implement the changes.

Included with Contract Bidding are standalone modules which provide you with the ability to research any and all global DoD solicitations, identify trends in procurement and look up expired but available for bid BSM solicitations to look for opportunities others missed or where not enough bids were submitted while open.

The second is Market Research which is our National Stock Number and CAGE Code research suite of products.  The suite supplies invaluable NSN and Cage research data to assist you in determining which contracts and products to pursue. The Market Research segment contains valuable data on National Stock Numbers, CAGE Code Holders, FSC or Federal Supply Class Information and more. Use these tools to look up NSNs, cross reference part numbers to NSNs, find all NSNs for a description you’re seeking or all NSNs related to a company, then narrow down that list by most recent award date, AMSC, dollar value of the product and more.  This suite also allows you to identify and find all products for example where the FSC is 1560 + the AMSC code is G + have an award in the last 2 years + are worth greater than 250 each.  After you narrow the list, review on screen or use the available data export to save the results set for later use.

For CAGE Codes or companies, quickly reference basic information such as address, phone number, CAGE Status, Primary Business, Affiliation Type, Business size and complete H4/H8 data as well as SAM registration information to identify relevant company designations and points of contact.  Additionally, find out about:

  • Every contract awarded to the company

4-a_new_day

  • By which agency & when

5-a_new_day

  • All the NSNs where the company is an approved source

6-a_new_day

  • All the competitors where overlapping DoD sales exist

7-a_new_day

Included in the Market Research suite are standalone modules which our members utilize to look up all historical solicitations to identify past procurement trends, buyers of commodities with emails and phone numbers, look up Emall sales data and an unparalleled GSA procurement research tool, access to the FAA PMA Database as well as an available Navy APL database for access to Alternate Parts, A1, B1, C1, MAPL, Component Characteristics, SNF and AEL Reports by RIC/AEL.

The third is Batch Search Manager which is our proprietary tool that provides the ability for our members to upload Part Numbers or National Stock Numbers (NSNs) and generate an output file that contains stock availability information, full FLIS information, full procurement history, full GSA procurement history and all open solicitations.

Similar functionality is available for companies or CAGE Codes. Batch Search Manager provides the ability to upload a list of CAGE Codes to obtain full H4/H8 information, all NSNs where the CAGE Code(s) are approved sources, full procurement history for all the companies uploaded, all open DoD solicitations with details and full SAM registration information.

In addition to the products and features discussed, PartsBase Government Data also offers a full FBO module, Department of Homeland Security’s APFS database, Turbo Links to GIDEP & ASSIST, intra company messaging and a unique Casting Search provider with send RFQ functionality.  There are so many more things we can cover but the most important feature of PartsBase Government Data is that our members will have a dedicated customer service manageable who is knowledgeable not just with the functionality of the site but with the actually subject matter and can offer keen insight and advice to further help when researching and selling to the DoD.

We invite you to come by www.govgistics.com and see for yourself.
