SBA Seeking Input for New Web Portal

Got any ideas for how to better match small business lenders with prospective borrowers?

The Small Business Administration wants to hear from you.

The agency is asking the lending and business communities for input on how to make a Web site that would do a better job of showcasing available credit for businesses while giving lenders a more efficient way of linking up with potential small business customers.

The agency has issued an unofficial "request for information" from potential vendors for a Web portal that would match interested lenders with prospective borrowers.

No contract will be awarded, but the SBA requests that proposals include recommendations on specifications, pricing strategy and project management. The agency is also looking for feedback on topics like user friendliness and transparency, privacy policy, pricing structure, revenue sharing and risks.

Responses to the agency request should be sent via e-mail to Joanie Newhart by April 28.
