Freelance consultants in the Government Freelance Exchange (GovFlex) marketplace are professional independent contractor's (1099's) with a variety of subject matter expertise. The profile for consultants details the skills, agencies, programs, certifications, availability, and cost to hire each consultant. The Consultant Dashboard which is only available to consultants, is a summary page which displays consultant activity, projects, quotes, and monies earned in the marketplace.
Once you complete your profile to at least 80%, it automatically becomes visible to all GovFlex clients that are looking for independent experts and consultant companies. Clients define their requirements in a project and GovFlex presents your profile to the client when it matches something in their requirement. The client may select your profile and request a quote for your time. You will receive an email notification when this occurs.

So, it's really important to complete your profile, provide your availability, and respond quickly when you receive a request for quote. Clients typically request quotes from at least 3 independent experts for their projects.
To increase earnings through engagements by companies looking for freelance talent, we highly recommend that consultants in the marketplace complete a profile to at least 80%, attach a resume, and request a minimum of 5 references to achieve Gold verification status and a 5-Star performance rating.
