What is MatchForce.org? To connect North Carolina businesses with all possible opportunities, including local opportunities at bases in the state, the NCMBC administers the State’s official, FREE web portal for federal contracting – www.MatchForce.org. North Carolina businesses register on the portal, receive automatic matches to federal prime opportunities and to sub-contracting opportunities posted by other registered businesses, and post job opportunities for FREE that match job skills posted by registered individuals. Firms identifying contract opportunities through MatchForce then contact the NCMBC for one-on-one assistance.
How do I get signed up for the list of bidders on base? There is no single list – there are several actions you can take to find out about upcoming solicitations and make it known that you are an interested vendor. One, search www.fbo.gov regularly- you may add yourself as an interested vendor on a specific solitication only. Two, depending on what industry you are in, you may sign up with prime contractors on their websites to receive subcontracting solicitations. Three, be sure you are signed up on www.matchforce.org and www.sam.gov so that you will receive notifications from the NCMBC on upcoming bids.
