Welcome to the NIST Acquisitions information page. NIST relies on contractors and vendors to supply many goods and services necessary to fulfill our mission. Every year, NIST buys millions of dollars worth of supplies and services from office equipment to specialized scientific instruments. If you're interested in supplying goods and services to NIST, you'll find valuable information here.
This service represents NIST's continuing commitment to improve its responsiveness to potential government contractors by providing as many documents as possible via the Internet. NIST posts synopses of acquisition requirements and downloadable versions of related solicitations and amendments to FEDBIZOPPS.
To be eligible for an award, all vendors must register with the Central Contractor Registration (CCR).
