The processes of government procurement in the United States enable federal, state and local government bodies in the United States to acquire goods, services (including construction), and interests in real property.. In fiscal year alone, the US Federal Government spent $bn on contracts. Contracts for federal government procurement usually involve appropriated funds . Bid: An offer to perform the work described in a contract at a specified cost. A complete and properly signed proposal to do the work. Competition for a job based on lowest cost to do the work. Government bids are generally cost-specific, based on the cost of labor, materials, profit, and overhead. Bids are normally not negotiated and cannot be.
