Gov 2.0 Workaround of the Week: AdvantagePlus

Jon Bearscove, a GSA Federal Acquisition Service contracting specialiston the Environmental and Logworld Schedule programs, has designed this Google-based search engine to do a better job at finding GSA-scheduled labor categories and services that GSA Advantage’s own search tool.

Using Google’s custom search engine, it can pick through GSA Advantage’s content–text, PDFs, etc,–without the navigational headaches of the Advantage interface. “Wasn’t producing the results I needed to help do my job, so I build a better search engine on my free time at home over a beer,” he told me over Twitter DM.

It also loads a lot faster.
