The FBI maintains a Solicitation Mailing List that lists all eligible and qualified concerns to ensure access to adequate sources of supplies and services.
The list is based upon requests submitted by the company to the Procurement Section on a Standard Form (SF) 129, Solicitation Mailing List Application (pdf), along with catalogs and/or brochures. All companies are categorized first by product code, then alphabetically, business size, whether minority or woman-owned, certified Hubzone business, and/or 8(a) certified.
In order to be placed on the FBI's Solicitation Mailing List, you must download the SF-129 (pdf) and mail it to:
Federal Bureau of Investigation

Attn: Ms. Lisa Moore
935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

You may include additional information along with the SF 129. Please keep telephone calls to a minimum as all the information regarding the FBI's contracting policies are contained on this web site. If interested in obtaining current solicitation information, you must visit Fedbizopps.gov.
