How to Get Government Contracts

This book gives an edge to companies who want to work with the government.

Ever wonder how a company enters the increasingly competitive market of securing government contracts with the world’s largest buyer?

How to Get Government Contracts: Have a Slice of the $1 Trillion Pie by Olessia Smotrova-Taylor demystifies the process of getting on the fast track and selling to the government. The book explains how a company can get their first and subsequent contacts, and turn its enterprise into a multi-million-dollar government contractor, all within a couple of years.

The book reveals what strategies top government contractors use to achieve a steady stream of work, and the latest best practices that their business development professionals use to succeed.

Most importantly, the book shows, step-by-step, how to get started. Included is an explanation of the types of federal market opportunities, and the best information sources to find out about these and prepare in advance. Also presented are the tools to conduct “capture” – pre-proposal preparation – and advice on how to achieve a disciplined, process-based approach to contract-winning proposal development and execution.

How to Get Government Contracts: Have a Slice of the $1 Trillion Pie gives an edge to companies who want to work with the government by explaining federal acquisition rules, how to get information about potential contracts before they are advertised, and how to profit from set asides for businesses owned by women, veterans, and minorities.
