WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - August 29, 2016) - US Federal Contractor Registration, the world's largest third-party government registration firm, is giving away $1 million in services, and, since July 7, 2016, has given away nearly $300k in services to small businesses owned by veterans, minorities, and women.
This $1 million giveaway will end December 31, 2016, or when the company has given away the full amount in services. Services can include access to contracting training modules, set-aside certifications, newsletters and industry updates, and even bid training.
"I was ecstatic to learn that the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) hit its small business contracting goals, which is thanks in part to the work we do for our clients," said US Federal Contractor Registration President Eric Knellinger. "To help celebrate the SBA announcement, and to help the SBA exceed its contracting goals again next year, I decided to make available for free $1 million in services."
Knellinger said that since no two contractors are alike, he isn't planning to just give everyone the same thing, and that each client will get what they need to foster contracting success.
"While talking to and qualifying the client, we'll determine what will help them succeed as a government contractor, and then we'll give them access to something that will do just that," said Knellinger. "Many small businesses don't have the necessary start-up capital to invest in themselves, and what I'm trying to do is take away some of that burden."
For example, a business owned by a woman may qualify for woman-owned small business certification, which gives them access to contracts set aside specifically for these types of businesses. Similar programs are in place for veterans and minorities, and US Federal Contractor Registration helps its clients get these certifications and find contracts on which to bid.
Knellinger is also willing to extend special financing to businesses who need help paying for specific services or products.
Clients interested in getting their part of this unprecedented $1 million giveaway must qualify, which Knellinger and his team is ready to help them do. Qualifying is just the first step on the road to succeeding as a government contractor, said Knellinger.
"During my career, I've seen firsthand how difficult succeeding in business can be, whether you're looking for federal contracts or not," said Knellinger. "I want to take this experience and knowledge and share it with owners of small businesses, and show them how they can succeed as government contractors."
In 2015, US Federal Contractor Registration helped its clients earn more than $1.9 billion dollars in government contracts. As of August 15, 2016, US Federal Contractor Registration clients have earned more than $1 billion in contracts in 2016.
Top Rate Express Services, Inc., which helps its clients identify and address freight issues, problems, and opportunities, and, drawing information from several sources, helps clients develop appropriate and cost-effective solutions, recently won its first contract. Anthony White owner of Top Rate Express Services, Inc. praised US Federal Contractor Registration for "help[ing] each step of the way." White added that his acquisition specialist "[went] above and beyond what I'd expect from someone and made sure I understood the steps and processes I needed to take and put in place in order to secure a contract and succeed."
Saskia Aimee, LLC -- a woman-owned small business that makes available high-end and unique gifts for corporate events and/or incentive trips -- recently completed her System for Award Management (SAM) Registration, thanks to US Federal Contractor Registration. Saskia Aimee, LLC Owner Saskia Galbraith called working with US Federal Contractor Registration "wonderful."
"I honestly would be lost trying to figure out how to complete my SAM Registration and search for and bid on contracts. I would have just completely ignored the opportunity, but US Federal Contractor Registration showed me the light."
With the $1 million giveaway ending when the company has given away the entire $1 million in services, Knellinger recommends business owners contact the company as soon as possible.
"Even if a company already has a SAM Registration, there's so much more they can do to increase their chances of winning a government contract," said Knellinger. "I expect that the services we give them will help them do just that."
