Orange Slices Startup focused on Driving Better Competition, Informed Partnering in Federal Contracting

ANNAPOLIS, MD, June 3, 2022 – Launched publicly in early 2022, the Orange Slices GovCon Partner identification tool is still in beta mode but is building momentum as a trusted resource with a stated mission to drive data democratization.

While this free and publicly available utility may be new, you would not know it based on recent analytics. Just a few of the numbers:

      • In May alone more than 125 IT & Consulting companies were submitted for addition to the Orange Slices GovCon Partner identification tool, bringing the total to more than 900.
      • The number of site visits and search tool queries has more than tripled in each of the past two months.
      • The month of May brought with it a barrage of requests from GovCon leaders sending partner research requests, 90% of which are related to active or pre-solicitation notices – an updated list of May partnering requests can be found here.

Said CEO, David Blackburn, “Quite frankly, the interest has been heavier than we anticipated, and we are struggling with our existing team to keep up. It is an exciting time, but we are just getting started. Much more will be unveiled as we add new verticals and functionality in the weeks and months ahead, and we prep for what promises to be a busy fiscal year end and quick start to FY 2023.”

Armed with perspective gained building several prominent and heavily trafficked GovCon data tools, the mission being driven by the Orange Slices leadership team is to drive data democratization and improved competition, with the end goal of making a real and measurable impact for U.S. Citizens, our Warriors and Veterans, our business leaders and educators, our seniors and caregivers, our families and our children
