BIZINT stands for Business Intelligence, and is a mobile- and web-based application used by Operational Planners, Senior Contracting Officials, and Contingency Contracting Officers to “see” commodities and services available in the commercial marketplace in countries and regions where we operate now, and where we may operate in the future.
BIZINT was developed and optimized to plan for and execute Joint Force commercial support requirements.
Interacting with BIZINT’s map-based interface, users can
define a region and quickly view the capacity of commodities
and services available in the region. If the region selected
doesn’t meet the supply capacity needed, users can “zoom
out” to look for additional capacity. Once the user’s market
research is completed, a list of available commodities and
services in the viewable region can be exported in a CSV
file. Users can filter and sort by class of supply and
commodity tags to further refine results. In about a
minute’s worth of time, users can easily understand the
commercial market’s capability to support operations and
BIZINT users can quickly and easily add, edit or delete a vendor. Commodity and service capacity associated with each vendor has been customized to return the most useful quantities and unit of measure information. For example, aircraft hangar space and size available for lease at an airfield is quantified by thousands of cubic feet. This information is visible to any BIZINT user and can be filtered and exported. Vendor-based commodity and service capacity data is collected from multiple sources: existing government vendor databases, vendor outreach efforts, and traditional “boots-on-the-ground” collection practices.
BIZINT's core features are supported by a variety of functions that extend the application's capability and provide greater detail about the commodities and services available in the marketplace.
BIZINT users can download commercial market intelligence to their mobile device to use when in low or no bandwidth areas. Offline data adds and edits will sync when the device re-establishes network connectivity.
Images can be added to a commodity or service to provide greater context or specific information not easily displayed in the commodity view.

Users can download CSV documents of all vendor and commodity information in a visible area for easy sharing and use during the planning process. CSV downloads contain contact numbers, supply types and potential capacity available.
