ALEXANDRIA, VA — The American Subcontractors Association (ASA) and epipeline Inc. announced an industry partnership that will give ASA’s 6,500 subcontractor, supplier, and service provider members special access to business development services for those who bid on federal government contracts.

Colette Nelson, executive vice president of ASA, said that identifying work opportunities has a different incentive than project collaboration, where subcontractor incentive usually comes from the general contractors.

Nelson asserts that “subcontractors need to take the initiative themselves to find, and use, services like epipeline’s, that help them identify business opportunities. This partner-ship gives business development professionals a premium Internet-based conduit for researching and managing federal government contracting opportunities.”

The partnership allows ASA members to access the epipeline website,, through the ASA website, www., to take advantage of discounted services.
