US Federal Contractor Registration: Simplified Acquisition Program First Year Goals for Enrolled Government Contractors

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - June 07, 2015) - Since its inception the Simplified Acquisition Program has been helping businesses win government contracts in the federal marketplace. US Federal Contractor Registration Acquisition Specialists are trained to qualify businesses for government contacting and teach novice government contractors how to market their business, place bids and ultimately win government contracts. Success with the Simplified Acquisition Program all steams from building relationships, bidding using proper etiquette and implementing a working strategy.

Relationships

* Build relationships with key purchasing officers identified with your list of Top Contracting Agents and Prime Contractors.

* Get purchasing officers to see your business as viable. Provide them with past performance or references.

* Find out what attributes each different purchasing officer looks for before awarding contract to new vendor relationships.

Bidding

* Submit bids for all work that is acceptable. Keep researching your opportunities from the notifications sent from FBO.gov.

* Adjust bidding strategy based on contractor de-briefs (adding products, services, pricing, etc).

* Submit competitive and proper bids that are considered for award bidding.

Strategy

* Understand who are the market leaders for your industry in the Federal Marketplace.

* Place your government website in all areas you place your private sector website.

* Know the key types of contracts that are awarded.

* Know when contracts come up for renewal (are they three year, one year contacts, etc.)

* Identify what makes current competitors successful. You can research your competitors’ past contracts by using the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS).

* Properly use your selling features (Small Business Set-Asides, WOSB, VOSB, etc.).

The Simplified Acquisition Program is designed to make small businesses compliant with FAR 13 and the simplified acquisition environment. The Simplified Acquisition Program is designed to help both large and small businesses win government service contracts between $2,500.00 and $150,000.00 and commercial item purchases between $2,500.00 and $5,000,000. The Simplified Acquisition Program is a vital solution to becoming successful in the federal marketplace for small businesses looking to compete in the no bid-contracting arena.
