Researching awards is an important practice for government contracts. Changes to a once user friendly and transparent data hub have reduced its usability and functionality. But have faith, with a bit of fishing around you are able to access the advanced search which produces similar results to the old system. Go directly to the advanced search here https://www.usaspending.gov/Pages/AdvancedSearch.aspx also found near the search box.
Have questions about research and how to use it to benefit your company? We are available to help.
