PGI 205.207 Preparation and transmittal of synopses.

(a)(i) Notice numbering.

(1) For a particular procurement, when submitting notices at different stages of the acquisition (i.e., sources sought notice, pre-solicitation notice, award notice), ensure the solicitation number is entered exactly the same way in order to allow all to be retrieved when a search is performed.

(2) Use only alpha-numeric characters in the solicitation and award number data elements in the GPE. Do not include hyphens, slashes, or other special characters.

(d) Special notices for small business events. When advertising an event for small businesses, post a 'special notice' notice type and ensure the "title" data field begins with "Small Business Event". This will enable the public to easily search the GPE using the small business event calendar on the website.
