Most of the navigation menu is available to both logged in users via the left sidebar, and to visitors of the public website via the Explore drop down menu at the top of the page.

For the remainder of this article, we will be focusing on the logged-in version of the navigation menu, but functionality is largely the same on the public site. There is a page view limit for visitors of the public website, but any site visitor is invited to sign up for our 14-day free trial. (No credit card required.)

Each menu section groups together related search pages or tools. Very broadly, the groupings are as follows:

  • My GovTribe - (Visible to logged in users only.) Where your personalized content resides. Your pipeline content, tasks, saved searches and notification settings. 
  • Opportunities - Contains the search pages for the types of opportunities you can find on GovTribe. This is where you find solicitation records, both current and historical.
  • Awards - Contains the search pages for award and spending/obligation data. This is where you find award records, contracting vehicles, and financial data for existing and past contracts and grants.
  • Participants - Contains the search pages for the players in the federal contracting and grant-making market - Agencies, federal contact persons, and vendors.
  • Categories - Contains the search pages / browsers for the categorization systems the federal government uses - NAICS and PSC.
  • Programs - Contains the search page for Federal Grant Programs.
