The Federal Data Procurement System (FPDS) – Next Generation (NG) is a single source for US government-wide procurement data. The system is managed by the General Services Administration (GSA), which is operated and maintained by Global Computer Enterprises. The FPDS-NG is the current central repository of information on Federal contracting. The system contains detailed information on contract actions over $3,000 (FY2004 and later data). The system can identify who bought what, from whom, for how much, when and where.
The FPDS provides the Government the knowledge of where tax dollars are spent and look at contracts across all government agencies. Further, it provides opportunity for the government to better assess where its money is being spent, thereby offering opportunities to better determine how to most effectively and efficiently expend those resources.
