St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) February 21, 2014
After being delayed twice from numerous counts of contractor feedback and the recent government shutdown, the GSA finally announced that they plan on awarding the OASIS small business portion by the end of the month. The OASIS contract is a multibillion dollar, 10 year indefinite delivery and indefinite quantity contract. The OASIS contract will be available for bid under the following trades: logistic services, IT services, engineering services, financial management services and scientific trades and services. The GSA is predicting that the OASIS program with grab 5 to 10 percent of the federal market (roughly $6 billion a year). However, in order for businesses to bid on the OASIS small business contract they must first be registered in System for Award Management (SAM).
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 firm has been helping businesses well before the inception of SAM with their government registration.
