St. Petersburg (PRWEB) February 04, 2014
The GSA, NASA and Defensive Department are attempting to change a prominent guideline in federal acquisition for the 8(a) Program. The amendment being proposed would help businesses in the 8(a) Program as well as help the federal agency with their small business goals. Small businesses that are no longer in the 8(a) Program but still have a contract with an agency will still be allowed to continue the contract. The federal agency funding the contract will still receive small business spending credit towards their overall goal for the year. Businesses must first be registered in System for Award Management (SAM) in order to receive federal contracts and awards.
SAM is the federal government’s database in which every contractor interested in federal contracts, grants and awards must be registered in. However, the SAM registration since its birth has brought nothing but problems to contractors. The Georgia Tech Procurement Technical Assistance Center “estimates that a high percentage of the 600,000 firms presently registered in SAM have errors in their records. The mistakes range from misspelled words to empty data fields, to incomplete entries, to selection of incorrect procurement codes, and other flaws.
As a result, these vendors miss-out on government contract opportunities either because they are screened out for not exhibiting attention to detail or because of incomplete information they cannot be identified by government buyers.” That is why US Federal Contractor Registration, the world’s largest and most trusted third party registration has been helping businesses well before the inception of SAM with their government registration.
US Federal Contractor Registration has registered private sector businesses such as McGraw Hill, HP, Wells Fargo, Xerox, GoodWill, Dixie, UPS, Heinz, Sheraton Hotels, Marriott, Westin, Interstate Oil, CITI, and Coldwell Banker. As well as academic institutions and colleges like NYC, Northwestern, Oxford, Southwestern, and Mercer. Numerous federal agencies like US Army, US Navy, Veteran Affairs and United States Department of Agriculture have also had their government paperwork facilitated by US Federal Contractor Registration Case Managers.
US Federal Contractor Registration pairs businesses with a dedicated Case Manager who help them every step of the way, from initial registration to bidding on contracts. If you are not registered in SAM or are an existing member and due for your Semi Annual Check Up, call the Contractor Helpline at (877) 252-2700 Ext 1.
