Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 02, 2014
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been under some scrutiny due to acquisition project overruns. The House Homeland Security Committee (HHSC) has determined that all overrun costs must be reported to Congress and approved. The Federal Times reports on April 30 that the HHSC has created the DHS Acquisition Accountability and Efficiency Act in an effort to enforce the spending for the DHS.
According to the stipulations of the agreement, the DHS would have to conduct three major clauses: 1) Create an acquisition review board within the agency that would validate procurement documents and review the cost, schedule and performance of major acquisitions, 2) Require every major procurement and program to have cost, schedule and scope baseline documents in order to determine its effectiveness and efficiency in later years and 3) Mandate the program manager to notify agency leaders if a program runs the risk of being 20 percent over budget or 12 months behind schedule.
The DHS has spent billions over the years in government contracts and continues to post hundreds of contracts to FedBizOpps seeking out properly registered government contractors.
The Georgia Tech PTAC office “estimates that a high percentage of the 600,000 firms presently registered in SAM.gov 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.” This shows that there is a real need for US Federal Contractor Registration’s services.
In an effort to help businesses become registered and help the small business initiative US Federal Contractor Registration is encouraging businesses to use other their full service or their self-service options. Investing in US Federal Contractor Registration’s full service plan prepares a contractor for all that is ahead. The full service includes yearlong technical support, annual SAM migration updates, added to the USFCR federal buyer newsletter, creation of a FEMA Vendor profile, grant assistance if needed, NAICS code research and the highly-recognized Verified Vendor Seal of Approval. US Federal Contractor Registration complaints are handled very seriously due to the gravity and importance of federal paperwork compliance.
US Federal Contractor Registration has registered over 60,000 private sector businesses in the SAM registration some of which include 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.
