St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) April 28, 2011
Federal contracts are an attractive vehicle for struggling small businesses to increase their revenue and experience. Several set-aside programs, such as the new WOSB 8(m) program, make this an especially great time for new vendors to work with the government. However, before any business can be awarded or paid for a federal contract, they must complete the required CCR registration and ORCA filing. Many struggling businesses simply don’t have the time or resources to learn how to register and complete the process on their own.
The Federal Procurement Data System reports that over $8M has been set aside for woman owned businesses for the 2011 Fiscal Year.
Recognizing the importance of small businesses in our economy and the Federal Government’s need for eligible vendors to meet their set-aside goals, US Federal Contractor Registration is running a contest ending May 1st, 2011, in which their basic registration package will be awarded to five woman owned small businesses.
To enter the contest, applicants must be a small business and be at least 51% women-owned. Interested applicants should email firstname.lastname@example.org and include information about their business (business name, how many years in business, what kind of products/services are offered), a point of contact for the company including contact telephone number and email address, why they should be awarded a free registration, what kind of contracts they plan to pursue once they are registered and how working government contracts can help them contribute to their community (eg – strengthening local economy, increased job growth, etc).
US Federal Contractor Registration’s basic registration package, valued at $599, covers the assignment of a personal Case Manager who will help the business complete the mandatory registration required to work federal contracts. This includes obtaining a DUNS number, completing CCR registration and assistance with ORCA filing. In addition, a brief capabilities statement will be included in a monthly newsletter sent out the month following registration to government buyers in the vendor’s SBA region, announcing the completion of their registration and interest in upcoming contracts.
The Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center estimates that “as many as 20 percent of the over 600,000 firms presently registered in CCR have mistakes in their records.” These mistakes include such errors as misspellings, omitted information or incorrect information and all have the potential of disqualifying a vendor from being awarded a contract. Many mistakes are the result of rushed and unprepared registration by inexperienced business owners trying to meet deadlines to bid on contracts or receive payments. Completing registration through an experienced Case Manager is the best way for new vendors to quickly and accurately complete the required CCR registration and ORCA filing.
The contest is ending soon, so interested business owners should hurry to get their entry submitted. This is a terrific value, saving both time and money for qualified businesses wishing to do business with the government.
Winners will be notified by email and an official announcement will be made by US Federal Contractor Registration by May 8th, 2011.
