The Procurement and Assistance Data System (PADS) is the Department of Energy's central repository of contractual information for all unclassified procurement and financial assistance awards. The data found in PADS On-line have been specifically selected based on hundreds of information requests that flow through DOE each year. Not all of the PADS data are selected for display on PADS ON-LINE.

PADS Online is sponsored by the Office of Procurement and Assistance Management. If you have any questions concerning this data base, or require additional information about any of the awards listed in PADS Online, please send an email to paul.coombs@hq.doe.gov.

If you do not need to to read the instructions on how to use PADS Online, click on the following link and GO TO SEARCH PADS ON-LINE NOW!

The data used in PADS Online are for awards that are currently active; that is, they have not passed their completion/delivery date. Data include both procurement awards and financial assistance awards. They exclude interagency agreements, awards for procurements under $25,000, and inactive and retired awards. These data are downloaded daily from the Procurement and Assistance Data System (PADS).

PADS Online provides information on the name of the awardee, the award and completion dates, award value, current fiscal year funding (obligations), the type of business, and a brief description of work.

You are not required to enter any selection criteria. However, by default, the system will provide a complete listing of all active procurement and financial assistance awards, if no selection criteria are entered.

You may sort on Contractor Name, Contract Number, Total Award Value, Completion Date, and Award Date.
