Manton Industrial Cork Products Inc was established in 1921 and has grown to become the largest importer of finished and semi-produced cork products, based in Hauppauge, NY. This family owned business maintains an extensive inventory of high quality products, allowing them to meet the needs of both their United States and export customers.
US Federal Contractor Registration recently helped Manton Industrial Cork Products Inc complete their CCR registration and ORCA filing in August 2011 to qualify them for government contract awards. They were then awarded the Verified Vendor seal to affirm that their registration is complete and free from errors.
Completing CCR registration and ORCA filing allows businesses to compete for contracts awarded by the Federal Government. Vendors who meet the SBA’s Small Business Size Standards, such as Manton Industrial Cork Products Inc, are in especially high demand as procurement officers seek to meet the 23% government-wide set aside goals for small business contract awards.
US Federal Contractor Registration is the official third party registration firm helping business owners with their CCR registration, ORCA filing preparation, FEMA Vendor Profile and government marketing. They help business owners by assigning a case manager to guide them through the paperwork and steps necessary to do business with the Federal Government.
The Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center estimates as many as 20% of current records in the Central Contractor Registration contain errors or missing information. These errors can cause problems for vendors and organizations looking for contracts, grants and other payments. Even minor errors and omissions can potentially cause problems for a firm interested in doing business with the Federal government. By adding the Verified Vendor seal to their company website, Manton Industrial Cork Products Inc confirms their error-free CCR and ORCA registration for interested federal buyers.
By working with an experienced and knowledgeable case worker, business owners can avoid many costly mistakes. US Federal Contractor Registration reviews the vendor’s information, carefully enters it into CCR and cooperates with all parties to navigate through any issues as they arise. Problems commonly encountered involve discrepancies between data recorded in Dun and Bradstreet, CCR and the IRS. While such issues are generally simple to correct, it can be time consuming and frustrating for an inexperienced business owner to determine where the discrepancy lies or even what is causing the problem. US Federal Contractor Registration case managers are familiar with these and other issues, allowing them to quickly identify the problem and correct it.
In order to help vendors stand out and increase buyers’ confidence in a vendor, US Federal Contractor Registration awards businesses with the Verified Vendor seal upon completion of their registration. This seal affirms that the vendor has completed their CCR and ORCA registration and that their registration has been verified to be free from errors. The seal will also benefit procurement specialists who do business with these vendors; they can buy with confidence knowing that time and money will not be wasted due to an incorrect, incomplete or expired CCR registration.
