Procuring Goods and Services
FDIC acquires goods and services through the use of various contractual instruments including, for low dollar non-complex purchases, purchase cards. FDIC acquisitions are accomplished in accordance with the Acquisition Policy Manual (APM) (i.e., the official policy document), along with its implementing and supplementing document entitled Procedures, Guidance and Information (PGI).
Acquisition Policy & Forms
Links to the Acquisition Policy Manual and relevant policies; forms for vendors; security requirements; and information regarding cooperation with the Office of the Inspector General.
Key Contacts in Acquisition Services Branch
The Acquisitions Services Branch contracts for services and goods for the FDIC. The Branch has offices in our headquarters offices in Washington, D.C., and in Dallas, Texas.
Central Contractor Registration (CCR)
Every contractor who is awarded an FDIC contract is required to be registered with Central Contractor Registration (www.CCR.gov).
Minority & Women Outreach Program
FDIC encourages the use of minority and women-owned businesses (MWOBs) and small disadvantaged businesses (SDBs) in the acquisition of goods and services, as contractors or subcontractors.
Procurement Opportunities
A brochure entitled "Doing Business with the FDIC" assists firms seeking to do business with FDIC. Information on how a contractor may be added to the Contractor Resource List, and a list of awards to contractors supporting FDIC in work related to failed financial institutions.
