Vendor Database FAQs
1. How does the vendor database help me?
First, the vendor database is an online database that holds slightly different information than the required System for Award Management (SAM), such as a capabilities statement.
Second, when market research is conducted for a specific project, Contracting Officers and Program Managers Federal-wide can search through our online database. Vendor research is conducted in SAM, and then the AQD vendor database can be viewed as a secondary source to provide additional information about a vendor's unique selling proposition.
Also, use the database as a networking/partnering tool for both prime and subcontracts.
2. Do I need to be a registered vendor to receive an award?
No. You do not need to be registered in the AQD database to receive an award. However, the vendor database is a useful promotional tool that you may choose to use.
