Member Sign Up (Google Form) PDF Form
March 25, 2020 In a first-of-its-kind arrangement, The Industry Council for Emergency Response Technologies (iCERT), the leading trade association for providers of public safety, communications, software, and emergency response technologies, announced a new first-of-its-kind FREE to members service; Bid/RFP business leads delivered daily.
"As far as we can tell, this has never been done before by a trade association," explained Kim Robert Scovill, iCERT's Executive Director, "It demonstrates our commitment to our Members during these difficult times, and an incredibly tangible benefit of iCERT membership. We want our members to be successful, and daily delivery of new potential business leads seems like a good way to do it. We're very grateful to Deltek for participating in this historic arrangement by building this unique service."
Here’s how the program works. Deltek has a nationally recognized comprehensive expert government business development / business intelligence service, GovWinIQ, that operates across all local, state, and federal markets. Deltek's GovWinIQ professional prospecting teams use their extensive network of contacts and sources to compile daily leads for all government business categories. iCERT leverages this data with business identifiers supplied by participating iCERT Members. These industry tags are updated periodically to keep pace with customers' changing needs. The Bids/RFPs that match are compiled for daily delivery. The comprehensive packet includes a listing of the opportunity, links to foundation documents, key contact, and other pertinent information. "The goal is to delivery actionable information that a Member can use immediately," noted Mr. Scovill, "Imagine the potential this has for small, medium, and even large iCERT Member organizations - and for NO extra membership dues. This service can essentially make membership free for many providers,” he noted.
The goals of this program include to:
1. help members sell new products and services, be successful, and grow,
2. allow members to pursue new / varied sales and business opportunities they may never have discovered through internal marketing,
3. identify relevant federal, state, and local agencies and build relationships,
4. keep a pulse on market activity and competitors,
5. capture and develop market / product metrics, databases, and market intelligence,
6. make new contacts and build relationships for future business, and
7. develop new markets.
Terms and conditions apply to the service.

This is a great benefit that allows our members to pursue new sales and build relationships that might otherwise go undiscovered.

If you encounter an error, or do not receive your daily transmission, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. iCERT is not responsible for transmission error or delays.
