    We are branching out into public work. Do those of you who do it register with every municipal agency, have a source that consolidates and publishes RFQ/RFP’s,Subscribe to buisness journals etc? We are finding most of what we can find is outdated by a few months at least, and are hard pressed to get in the pipeline for new design RFQ/RFP’s. Any feedback would be great.

    I realize this is an older post, but thought I’d offer my suggestions. Generally state laws require RFP/RFQ be “published”, this means you can find them in the legal sections of local newspapers. I check the local newspaper’s website as well as the websites of the agencies themselves directly.

    The easier way I’ve discovered is to get involved with government on a local level. I live in a small town, and figured with my education/background I could be a helpful member of the city Planning and Zoning Commission. I started this position over a year ago, when I worked out of town. Since being laid-off in February, the relationships I’ve developed volunteering have helped immensely. I have good working relationships with the other members of the board, usually involved members of the community in various capacities, as well as the city staffers overseeing P&Z. It is amazing how often local officials network with their counterparts in other agencies, and being familiar with them they know I am always looking for work, I generally hear if anything I might be interested in is going on nearly anywhere in the vicinity.

    There are any number of web sites, subscription based, where state, federal and municipal rfp’s are listed. I have not found one that has everything… I usually check three or four different ones when I’m in the mood.





    You can search without a subscription, but you can’t see the details. Often a Google search on the name of the rfp will lead you to the details elsewhere

    Thanks Scott and Rob. I appreciate the feedback and your taking the time to respond.

    Jeff –

    I do a search about once a week by going to the various City websites for the communities we’re near by. I search within each site, or look for a bid/RFP menu somewhere. Then I bookmark the actual RFP advertisement page so it only takes a few minutes to browse through them all.

    I find that’s a pretty decent approach to keep your eye on local municipal work. Hope it helps!

    Hi Jessica,

    I am starting that very process. Thanks for the suggestion.
