The Bid Targeting System (BTS) is a free online tool for Michigan businesses. It is designed to automatically identify the best federal contract opportunities for your company.
To offer more flexible options for users, the Michigan Defense Center recently launched the BTS “Opportunities Wizard”, a new feature that walks you through a step-by-step tutorial to search for different government contract and grant opportunities.
Get Started by following this Step-by-Step Tutorial:
Try the Opportunities Wizard by logging into BTS and clicking on the “Search Bids” link at the top-left of the page, and then the “Opportunities Wizard” button.
This will allow you to start your search with “New Filters”.
