Dynamic Small Business Search or better known as DSBS to contracting professionals recently updated their keyword limit from 20 to 50. With all commas, spaces, and words a vendor can now have up to 1000 characters in their keyword limit area of Dynamic Small Business Search. This increase in keywords will give registered small business government contracts more opportunities to be seen on the government database when searched by federal procurement officers. Dynamic Small Business Search (DSBS) is currently used as the ‘Google Search’ for small business government contractors. With the United States Federal Government required to spend 23% of their contracting budget on small businesses, Dynamic Small Business Search is used as one of the main sources to find properly registered government contractors. This new update will also allow a Dynamic Small Business Search user to write more for their capabilities narrative. This narrative acts as a Capability Statement within the small business database. Small businesses are encouraged to use their capability statement when marketing to government buyers and prime contractors to win available opportunities. Dynamic Small Business Search is a key database to registered in when looking to be awarded small business government contracts.
According to Data.gov, DSBS is a search tool that accesses information pooled from internal HubZone, 8(a) and SDB offices as well as the external Central Contractor Registration system (CCR)/System for Award Management (SAM). This system is used by small businesses to increase their visibility to government and business procurement offices searching for small businesses to meet small business contracting goals.
