US Federal Contractor Registration has developed a new way for small businesses to break into the federal marketplace and start winning contract awards. This new offering, the Simplified Acquisition Program, has already proven effective for new contractors.
Simplified Acquisition rules, mandated by the Federal Acquisition Regulations, are the basis for the Simplified Acquisition Program. These rules define Simplified Acquisitions as having a value between $2,500 and $150,000. In some industries, however, these rules may apply to contracts as high as $6.5 million.
Simplified Acquisition contracts help all kinds of businesses in the federal market: small, small disadvantaged, women-owned, veteran-owned, HUBZone, service-disabled veteran-owned, and large firms all gain advantages through these kinds of contracts.
Vendors in the Simplified Acquisition Program are highly encouraged to reach out and contact federal purchasing officers directly – this is in fact a key component of the program! This allows businesses to learn about upcoming contracts before they are even released, as well as make vital networking contacts. Most purchasing officers will not advertise contracts under $25,000 on FedBizOpps (FBO) so the only way to learn about these opportunities is to develop a relationship with that particular buyer. Payment options for these types of contracts also vary, ranging from SMART Pay Cards to even cash. Blank purchase agreements and miscellaneous purchase agreements are also used in simplified acquisition contracts. This is generally not allowed through the normal bidding process since larger contracts must be reported on the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS).
The US Federal Contractor Registration Simplified Acquisition Program is an innovative introduction for small businesses into the lucrative world of federal contracting. The program helps businesses complete all the paperwork and red tape necessary to get started as well as lay a foundation of best practices and marketing strategies that will help the vendor find success. The program has already helped earn millions of dollars in contract awards for past clients such as Mac Made Easy, Creative Tent International, Excel Concrete, Suburban Surgical Co., Inc, and Nancys I.T. Guy.
