Small Business Alliance: Category Management Dashboards
Category management is a strategic business practice that the Federal Government is applying to buy smarter and more like a single enterprise. It enables the government to eliminate redundancies, increase efficiency, deliver more value and savings from the government's acquisition programs, and meet the government’s small business goals. Accordingly, the government-wide IT Category has a strong commitment to small businesses and wants to take all of their interests into account as they relate to the Category Management framework. The government-wide IT Category is continuing its series for small businesses with a second session aimed at sharing and familiarizing the community with the data tools and dashboards that are available for public access on the Category Management D2D Analytics platform.
Please join us for a learning and information session for the small business community, hosted by the ACT-IAC Small Business Alliance focused on the GSA Category Management Dashboards.
Tools that will be covered include:
Contract Inventory Exploration Tool
Awards Exploration Tool
Small business dashboard
Contract-Awarded Labor Category (CALC) tool
Category Management Executive Summary dashboard
Learn about these dashboards that cover a wide range of category management stakeholders’ needs -- including information that agencies use to monitor key performance indicators (KPIs), increase their small-business utilization, and access the first-ever government-wide contract inventory with spend under management (SUM ) tier information. There also are robust tools on the Acquisition Gateway to help agencies forecast upcoming contracting opportunities, learn about awarded labor rates and more.
We’ll also walk-through how suppliers can use tools to better understand where opportunities are emerging because of category management.
