Michael Pirolo, with Government Contract Registry says, “In Fiscal Year 2014, GSA spent more than $1.5 billion with small businesses. That represents almost 39 percent of dollars that were eligible for small businesses. That is more than 16 percent above the federal goal. This is great news for business's looking to expand into the government sector for 2015-2016. While these numbers are admirable, we need to do even more to get small businesses involved in government contracting."
Mr. Pirolo also says, “I recently had the opportunity to speak with a Washington, DC, area media outlet about what GSA is doing to increase opportunities for small businesses in government contracting. In particular, I discussed GSA ability to help small businesses succeed once they have been awarded their GSA Schedule. In my conversations with GSA they have no solid programs to help GSA Schedule holders market themselves to Federal Buyers." Mr. Pirolo continues to say, “Marketing to the various federal agencies after a GSA Schedule is awarded is extremely important. No business owner opened their business, stuck a sign on their door and was a success over night. Marketing your company’s services and/or products had to be done. The same applies to the federal government. Marketing to federal buyers is a must. Every company needs help with doing business with government agencies. Whether you sell products and/or services, Government Contract Registry can help.”

Once a business is awarded one, or more, of these certifications or MAS (Multiple Award Schedule) contracts, and FSS (Federal Supply Schedule) there are major benefits.
Certifications places requirements on government agencies and suppliers to give a certain percentage of their work to those companies who have successfully gone through the process. As a reminder, self-certification in System for Award Management (SAM) is not the same as an official certification from a certifying agency. A self-certification does not enable a business to participate in the set-aside contracts.
