The Commerce Business Daily (CBD) Web Page is an on-line version of the paper CBD. Prior to 1 January 2002, the CBD would list all government business opportunities that exceeded the FAR dollar threshold. However, since 1 January 2002, the Federal Business Opportunities web page has become the single point of public access on the Internet for government-wide federal procurement opportunities {business opportunities that exceed $25,000}. You can access this site in the table above.

The DoD Business Opportunities page is similiar to the Federal page. It, however, confines itself to military service business opportunities. The other hyperlinks above contain information on
  1. How to register for both military and civilian agency government business.
  2. Opportunities for both small and minority owned business.
  3. System, subsystem, and service contract opportunities with the major Air Force Material Command Centers.
  4. And, a direct link to one of the best government web sites - The Air Force FAR website. It contains all FAR, DFARS, AFARS, and other FAR-related information. It also has a very useful search engine to conduct FAR-related searches. If you need to access a particular FAR clause, this is the site to visit.
