I'm aware of a subscription database that can show lists of the latest
government-issued contract offers.  It looks like this:

2 Demolition Only 2330 Nw Furman Rd & 2336 Nw Furman Rd Kansas  02/20/2006 

3 Property Demolition @610 Curtis Dr Texas  02/17/2006 

4 Property Demolition @ 1805 Whitney Dr Texas  02/17/2006

8 Fairview Park Demolition Tennessee  02/16/2006 

9 DEMOLITION BID PACKAGE New Jersey  02/16/2006 


and so on....

Is that the sort of thing you're looking for?

Thanks for getting back to me.  

There are a few commercial services on the internet that will probably
serve your needs nicely, as they compile information on thousands of
new contracting jobs -- requests for proposals -- and make these
easily searchable.

The services can even deliver an email directly to your inbox with any
new postings as they become available.

The first such service is FindRFP:

and you can use it immediately by simply entering a term of interest
in the search box.  I searched on [ demolition ] to create the list I
provided to you earlier.

The search will return a list of RFPs from state and federal governments.  

In order to get the full information on each listing, you have to
subscribe to the FindRFP service.  However, they offer a free trial --
look for the red "Free Trial" button or box on each page.

FindRFP offers online searching, email notification, and more.  As
their site puts it, they provide:


Unlimited On-line Search of the most up-to-date comprehensive database
all in one location

 ? Daily Email Notification  on matching new bid opportunities
delivered to your mailbox

 ? Exhaustive Coverage of the $2 trillion government market 

 ? Complete and Relevant Information screened by sophisticated search
engine and human editors

 ? Boost Revenue: our members typically bring in $100,000 to
$2,000,000 in additional revenue each year


Subscription prices vary depending on whether you are looking for
regional or national coverage, but run around $20-30 per month.

Another service offering similar sorts of access to RFPs is Onvia:

Their site doesn't offer a search box, so it's harder to test out than, but they will send you a free sample of listing tailored
to your interests, if you fill out their form.  Just click on the text
that says "FREE Sample Guide", and give it a try.

These two are probably your best bet (there are some federal
government services as well, but these are more limited as they don't
cover state offerings).  Give them a try, and let me know how they
work out for you.

I trust this information fully answers your question.  

However, please don't rate this answer until you have everything you
need.  If you would like any additional information, just post a
Request for Clarification to let me know how I can assist you further,
and I'm at your service.

All the best,


search strategy -- Used bookmarked sites for RFPs.

Are you looking for ways to promote your business online, and/or elsewhere ?
Do you currently own a website and if so, where, and do you currently
use other forms of promoting your business ?

YES! that would be good especially if i could search by the term
demolishing and state yes. anything that would automate the task of
looking of leads would work well.
