The Federal Procurement Data System is the one essential U.S. government database for understanding companies, customers and markets.
FPDS PRO™ DELIVERS FPDS WITH RAW POWER AND EASE OF USE.
The Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) is the Mount Everest of U.S. Government databases. It exceeds 85 million records in size, each with hundreds of fields. Whether you're analyzing a competitor, a customer, or an entire market, it's the one essential, indispensable resource.
Anyone can download the FPDS database, and many have. A programmer with basic skills could slap a search interface on it in a day or two. But there's nothing basic about DACIS FPDS Pro™. We've invested man-years of effort in creating an FPDS product with unprecedented ease of use and unequaled power.

Welcome to Discovery
Even for a "Jedi master" skilled in the most efficient search strategies, tackling FPDS proves a pain-staking process of unending trial and error—And if he or she wanted actual insights into the data, it had to be exported to a spreadsheet and manipulated with a pivot table. Explaining why most companies—even the largest—have only a small cadre of FPDS specialists. We flipped the script to pursue an interface which helps rather than hinders. You'll see the difference when you enter your first search term. That's when our Guided Search kicks in. Every time you go to a new search field, you'll be met with rank-ordered lists of available options. As you make your selections, each will instantly winnow the results in your next search criteria, and your next… Sure, it's search, but you're going to think of it as discovery.
We appreciate the need for time-saving and error-eliminating short cuts. Whether you're monitoring customer or program activity, pumping out full-blown market reports, or anything in between, you'll appreciate Saved Searches. Shortcut your starting point: Set a simple save for records beginning in 2018 for only the most recent actions. Eliminate the need for getting every lengthy search criteria correct every single time: Even your most complex searches can be stored and activated at your convenience. They'll always open with up-to-date results. And yes, Saved Searches can be modified at any time.
It's Fast. In our hands, 70 million-plus records are as responsive as an Italian sports car.
Export your results, your way. Once you've honed your search to perfection, you can export the results to your favorite spreadsheet program. We provide options for limited exports of the most important fields, or full exports of more than 200 fields. You want reports? You've got a choice. Not just one report format, but more than a dozen. And you can export customized information from all of them.This feature gives you the power of a pivot table, without the hassle of exporting to a spreadsheet program. You're going to like it.
We provide just one proprietary field in FPDS Pro, but it's a doozy. Parent Search aggregates all the cost centers and joint ventures (it bears repeating… and joint ventures) for more than 7,000 of the industry's most important companies. This is our analysis—tens of thousands of man-hours of it—not licensed from a third party. If you've ever yearned for a simple way to find all the businesses that comprise a Raytheon Technologies… or all the subsidiaries which comprise a sprawling tribally-owned company like Arctic Slope Regional Corporation… or struggled to keep up with all the acquisitions of a serial acquirer like CACI International—this single search field is going to change your life.
