Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps)

Solicitations posted on Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) web site at https://www.fbo.gov/ by Japan Engineer District for construction and most service requirements are normally intended for local sources only.  Local sources are those sources (e.g., Corporations or Partnerships) that are physically located in Japan and authorized (i.e., licensed and registered) to conduct business in Japan.  Please review the individual synopses for details.

Prospective contractors (hereinafter called vendors) may search, monitor, and retrieve announcement information pertaining to JED solicitations through the single point-of-entry at FedBizOpps.  Vendors are required to log in to FedBizOpps to perform their desired tasks to seek and retrieve opportunities.

All prospective contractors and their subcontractors and suppliers must register as vendors in FedBizOpps before they can download solicitation information from the site.  Vendors should read the information under News and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) at FedBizOpps to understand the new processes.

All new Vendors seeking business opportunities from the Government must first register in the System for Award Management(SAM) before they can register with FedBizOpps.  Please go to the SAM website for specific registration instructions.
