GovTribe has rolled out its second version of its mobile application for iPhone users to monitor contracting opportunities with the federal government.
Hord is designed to give subscribers access to contract information from government agencies and publish real-time updates on a project’s activity, GovTribe said Thursday.
“Our goal with hord is to provide an affordable and easy way to understand what is going on in the world of government contracting,” said Nate Nash, GovTribe CEO.
“The fact that most information about government procurements is delivered via email or word of mouth, often 24-48 hours after it occurred, is patently absurd,” he added.
According to the company, app users can also track contracting officers and competitors that won contracts.
Deloitte Consulting‘s Rodrigo Ortiz said he uses the app to find U.S. Agency for International Development request for proposals and contractors.
The app contains contract data from 130 federal agencies.
