eBuy is “Set-Aside” Ready!

eBuy, GSA’s request-for-quote (RFQ) system, has been updated to facilitate set-asides.
Now you can choose whether your requirement will be set-aside for small business or another small business category.  If you decide to set-aside the requirement, then the RFQ will be viewable only by eligible Schedule contractors. For example, only HubZone Schedule contractors could view a RFQ set-aside for HubZone small business concerns.
