Finding Your Next Janitorial Contract

Janitorial services are needed across many types of organizations, including commercial businesses, schools, hospitals, residential facilities, and government agencies. In many cases, these organizations will issue bids and RFPs to find the best fit for the job. If your business provides janitorial or custodial services of any kind, you can start easily finding new opportunities with Periscope S2G.

The janitorial services industry has been on the rise over the last few years and is expected to continue on an upward trend. Especially after the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations have increased routine cleanings to meet health and sanitization standards, making the need for businesses like yours even more essential. According to IBISWorld, janitorial services have increased by approximately 5.2% annually from 2018-2023. This proves beneficial for your business as there will be many more opportunities on the horizon to start bidding on.

Getting Matched with Janitorial Opportunities

On Periscope S2G, we find hundreds of janitorial opportunities a month, making it easy for you to start the bidding process at any time. Start finding bid opportunities from federal, state, and local government agencies across the U.S. and even Canada when you register as a supplier.

You may be wondering how we know what opportunities to send you. As a registered supplier, one of the first things you’ll want to do is set up your NIGP codes within your bidding profile. This is how we’ll find and match you with bids that align with the products or services your business sells. To set up your codes, all you need to do is type in keywords such as “janitorial”, “custodial”, “cleaning”, etc. and available NIGP codes will pop up that you can scroll through and add to your profile. Remember to select all that apply. Below are a few examples of NIGP codes that you can select:

  • 910-39 - Janitorial/Custodial Services
  • 934-39 - Janitorial Equipment Maintenance and Repair
  • 485-65 - Janitorial Equipment and Supplies
  • 485-83 - Sanitizing and Disinfecting Supplies, Janitorial

In addition to adding NIGP codes to your profile, you can also add keywords, like the ones mentioned above, to find even more precise opportunities. Every time we find a bid including that keyword, you’ll be alerted. In addition, if there are certain things you don’t want to see, you can add them as negative keywords, so they’ll be eliminated from the list of bids you receive.

Getting Notified of Janitorial Opportunities

Once you’ve personalized your profile and added all your matching keywords and NIGP codes, you’ll be all set to start exploring. Another great perk to remember is that you can also receive daily email notifications with a list of the matching bids we find, so that you’ll never miss out on an important opportunity. Simply toggle the notifications button to “on” in your bidding profile and you’ll be all set. Receiving these notifications will give you a great preview as to what the bid opportunity entails and, if you’re interested, you can click on the bid and it will bring you directly to the bid details page with all the documents, specifications, due dates, and more.
