Interested In Doing Business with the FBI

To carry out our intelligence and law enforcement missions, the FBI must meet the needs of our personnel and manage the facilities we have located across the country and around the world. 

The FBI uses a competitive process to acquire the goods and services that support the work we do, in accordance with Part 6 of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR).

Following guidelines from the Office of Management and Budget, the FBI is held to using best-in-class contract vehicles for many products and services. We encourage all business partners to leverage participation on these contracting solutions to better serve the FBI mission. All mandatory and preferred contract solutions can be found here.

The FBI’s Commitment to Small Businesses

Our Small Business Program Office (SBPO) works to encourage small businesses to pursue FBI procurements. We are committed to ensuring that small businesses are given priority in our procurement efforts. 

The SBPO advocates for small business by issuing full and partial set-asides that meet federal goals and regulations. We strive to contract with small businesses on 31.25 percent of our prime contracts and 38 percent of our subcontracts.
