US Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR) is releasing highly regarded data showing the increase of federal contracts in Arkansas. Currently after reviewing the federal marketplace for available solicitations, US Federal Contractor Registration has found 235 contracting opportunities in Arkansas. In order for businesses in Arkansas to start bidding on these opportunities and awards, they must first become registered in System for Award Management (SAM). Contractors can call (877) 252-2700 Ext 1 to start the government registration process or go to their SAM.gov Online Registration page.
Since Phase 1 of System for Award Management (SAM), US Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR) has migrated previously registered contractors from CCR to SAM to make sure their business continues to qualify for government contracts and federal set-asides. USFCR is the worlds largest third party registration firm, which continues to migrate thousands of small businesses into SAM. This is all in an effort to increase small business involvement in government contracting.
The Federal Government has mandated by law that 23% of all prime contracting dollars are to be awarded to registered small business government contractors. According to USAspending.gov, in 2012 over $500 billion worth of government contracts were awarded to businesses. The federal marketplace for government contracting has an enormous amount of opportunities for registered small businesses. USFCR makes sure that small businesses are properly registered in SAM in order to be approved for small business contracts and simplified acquisition contracts.
To help small businesses avoid costly errors, US Federal Contractor Registration is offering an evaluation and review of a vendors government registration. During the evaluation, a Placement Specialist will review the company’s government contractor registration to ensure it is complete, free from errors and is optimized to help them win government contracts. To receive this evaluation, interested businesses should contact the Contractor Helpline at (877) 252-2700 ext 1. Placement Specialists can also prepare a government contracting profitability assessment to help business owners review government spending trends within their industry and identify current contracting opportunities.
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.
