After receiving help from US Federal Contractor Registration to complete his company’s CCR and ORCA registration and market his company to government buyers, Chris Weyrick has been awarded a $354,575 contract by the Department of Veterans Affairs to perform on-site inscription services at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery.
Chris Weyrick’s company Rock Crazy is a small business based in Wapello, IA and performs custom stone engraving services.
Over $11 billion in government contracts have been awarded since the beginning of the 2012 fiscal year on October 1st, according to the USASpending website. Over 13% of that $11 billion has been awarded by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Headstones, markers and niche covers are furnished by the Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration for deceased veterans worldwide. The contract awarded to Chris Weyrick is for inscription services for these headstones, markers and niche covers.
US Federal Contractor Registration completed Chris Weyrick’s CCR registration and ORCA filing in September of 2011.
The Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery is located approximately 50 miles south of Chicago in Elwood, IL. It was dedicated as the 117th national cemetery within the Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration. President Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States; he signed the law authorizing national cemeteries in the United States on July 17, 1862. Once fully developed, the cemetery will provide 400,000 burial spaces.
The Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center has estimated that nearly 20% of CCR records errors or omissions. It is extremely important that contractors’ CCR and ORCA registration are complete and accurate. Failure to complete and maintain the required government registrations can result in payment delays or disqualification for contract awards. Serious errors may even result in fines or punitive action. To win their first contract, most businesses spend an average of 20 months and $100,000 marketing their business to contracting agencies. If their registration is incomplete or incorrect, all that time and money will have been wasted.
