Washington D.C. (PRWEB) September 19, 2014
With about two weeks left in the final 2014 fiscal quarter, contractors are scrabbling to prepare their government resume in time. A government resume or better known as a Capability Statement is one of the most needed and widely used tools in government contracting. Procurement officers are constantly sorting through contractor after contractor to find which business best fits their solicitation. A well developed Capability Statement that follows all of the rules will stand out among the other bidders.
It is important to keep the overall look of a Capability Statement relatively simple. Procurement officers are just looking for the facts front and center. A good rule of thumb is to keep a Capability Statement under 250 characters. The reason why a business would want to make their government resume so short is because it needs to be versatile and flexible. Every business in the federal marketplace should place their Capability Statement on anything from marketing materials like brochures to federal databases like Dynamic Small Business Search (DSBS).
If a Capability Statement is several pages in length a procurement officer is most likely going to toss it on the rejection pile. It has been proven time and time again that a shorter Capability Statement is 10x more effective then a lengthly company write up. Every Capability Statement should include the following information:
- Business name, point of contact, and contact information
- DUNS number, CAGE code, and GSA contract number (if applicable)
- Business’s primary goods/services
- Applicable set-aside eligibility (women owned, HUBZone, 8(a), etc)
- NAICS and PSC codes
- Brief description of the business’s qualifications
