  • The Feds think FBO is a great solution?
    It's amazing to me that the Federal government seems to think that FBO is such a great solution for all issues with vendor-government communications. OSDBUs consistently parrot "go to Fedbizopps" as the living mantra; however, the parties responsible for the design and the functionality of the website seem to have dredged up a human computer interaction expert from 1989 to create the website. However, if you wish to actually find an available procurement through a process other than serendipity and its cousin sheer luck, then it's going to be a long and tortuous process. Why is it so much easier for me to find shoes on Zappos or movies on Netflix than it is to find procurements on the portal of the world's largest spender of money - the U.S. government? FBO.gov is in serious, serious need of an overhaul, starting with the current lack of search functionality. Even the search links that you posted show a grave inability to dig further or to even reveal all of the potential collaboration opportunities out there, primarily because the search functionality is so primitively limited on FBO.gov. Here are some other ways in which FBO.gov fails to serve its user base, the public: http://www.opensourceconnections.com/2012/03/06/the-failure-of-search-at-fedbizopps/
