The Department may, at any time, delay or cancel any or all Forecast items if the Department's requirements change. All contract award dates are projections.

ED posts solicitations at FedBizOpps (FBO). FBO is the single point on the Internet where vendors can access information needed to bid on government contracts over $25,000.00.
