Search for AWS Public Sector Partners by Contract Vehicles and Socioeconomic Status

By Kelly Storms, Sr. Marketing Manager, Worldwide Public Sector Partner Programs at AWS

AWS Public Sector Partner ProgramWe are excited to announce the addition of Public Sector Contract Vehicles as a new search option in the AWS Partner Solutions Finder. We have also added the ability to search by U.S. government socioeconomic status.

The contract vehicles feature enables public sector organizations to quickly identify AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners who hold contract vehicles. Just add a specific contract vehicle to your search using a keyword or by selecting one or more contracts from the drop-down list.

Federal customers can also narrow their search by socioeconomic status—a provision frequently included in government contracts—such as Small Business, Women-Owned, Minority-Owned, or Veteran-Owned businesses.

Previously, you could only search for APN Partners by capability, industry, or location. Publishing contract information to the AWS Partner Solutions Finder has been a top request from our public sector customers.
