The service reports data on purchases and procurement by U.S. government agencies where contract value is $3,000 or more. Any such contract must be reported to the system, and all updates and modifications also must be reported. Applications can use the system to retrieve data about all contracts logged, including the agency making the purchase, the vendor of the goods or service purchased, the amount paid, and other contract terms.
API methods support retrieval of contract records, with filtering by date range, purchasing agency, vendor, location, product classification, and other parameters. Methods also support creating and updating records for contracts posted for bids and awarded to vendors.
