MinnPar (Mounds View, MN), since the completion of their government-formatted website and initial enrollment in the Simplified Acquisition Program has won three government contracts grossing $45,206 in federal revenue. This is all thanks the Simplified Acquisition Program, and the guidance of Rod Johnson.

MinnPar (Mounds View, MN) has been a Verified Vendor with US Federal Contractor Registration since February 2014. After speaking with Acquisition Specialist Rod Johnson and discussing available opportunities for their business, MinnPar decided to enroll their business into the Simplified Acquisition Program. The Simplified Acquisition Program helps businesses target procurement officers that have a record of buying their businesses types of goods or services. It gives contractors the ability to develop real connections with government agencies and win simplified acquisition contracts set-aside by the Federal government for small businesses.

MinnPar, since the completion of their government-formatted website and initial enrollment in the Simplified Acquisition Program has won three government contracts grossing $45,206 in federal revenue. This is all thanks the Simplified Acquisition Program, and the guidance of Rod Johnson. MinnPar was able to target available simplified acquisition contracts that were not posted to federal bid boards and only available exclusively through direct contact with government buyers.

Simplified acquisition contracts range between $2,500 and $150,000, and do not have to be recorded in the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System because of their size. Businesses that proactively reach out to procurement officers in an effort to win simplified acquisition contracts have a better chance at winning multiple contracts at once, an example would be through a Blanket Purchase Agreement. All vendors must be registered in System for Award Management (SAM) prior to bidding on contracts and reaching out to government buyers.
