Pipelines on GovTribe contain Pursuits, and each Pursuit represents an individual opportunity at some stage of the review, response, or bid process. 

It is most common to create a Pursuit from an Opportunity or from an Award that you find on GovTribe. However, there are also situations where you may wish to create a Pursuit prior to identifying the appropriate Opportunity or Award to link. We call this creating the Pursuit manually.

This short video shows you how to create a new pursuit manually. A written walkthrough with screenshots is also included below.

There are two ways to create a Pursuit manually. From the Pursuits search page, or from the Pipeline stage.

Creating a Pursuit from the Pursuit Search Page

Start by select Pursuits under My GovTribe in the side menu.

On the Pursuits page, click the Add Pursuit button to the right of the search bar. 

You are then presented with a pop up modal. You must complete the information in the first tab in order to finish creating the Pursuit.

Pipeline & Stage Tab

Select from a drop-down list of your Pipelines and their corresponding stages to indicate where you want the Pursuit to go.

Details Tab

We highly recommend that you also complete the information in the Details tab as well. 

The Details tab of the Add Pursuit modal allows you to enter key information about the opportunity you are pursuing. You can modify the name of the Pursuit and add a Description, if you wish. 

We highly recommend that you complete, and keep up to date, the following fields:

  • Win Probability - Your estimate of your percentage chance of winning the bid
  • Estimated Value - Your estimate of the award value for the bid
  • Due Date - Due date for the response. Usually filled in automatically by the Opportunity. 
  • Estimated Award Date - Your estimate of when an award will be made.

These four values drive all of your Pipeline performance stats. Though they are not required fields, keeping them up to date will allow you to better forecast your current and future performance.

Once you click OK you will be redirected to the new Pursuit page.

Creating a Pursuit from the Pipeline Stage

Start by going to the Pipeline to which you'd like to add a new Pursuit. You can add a Pursuit manually to any stage of your pipeline, including Triage

Click the Add Pursuit at the top of that stage. 

Since you initiated Pursuit creation from the desired Pipeline and Stage, the first tab is completed for you automatically, and you are presented with the Details tab of the Pursuit creation modal.

The Details tab of the Add Pursuit modal allows you to enter key information about the opportunity you are pursuing. You can modify the name of the Pursuit and add a Description, if you wish. 

We highly recommend that you complete, and keep up to date, the following fields:

  • Win Probability - Your estimate of your percentage chance of winning the bid
  • Estimated Value - Your estimate of the award value for the bid
  • Due Date - Due date for the response. Usually filled in automatically by the Opportunity. 
  • Estimated Award Date - Your estimate of when an award will be made.

These four values drive all of your Pipeline performance stats. Though they are not required fields, keeping them up to date will allow you to better forecast your current and future performance.

Once you click OK you will be redirected to the new Pursuit page.
