St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) March 30, 2012
Reliance Funeral Services has been awarded their first federal government contract after US Federal Contractor Registration assisted them with their CCR registration and ORCA filing. On March 5th, 2012, they were notified by a contracting officer at Fort Belvoir, VA that their bid was successful and they would be awarded a contract for disinterment and re-interment services at Arlington National Cemetery.
Reliance Funeral Services is a Minority and Veteran Owned Small Business located in Alexandria, VA. The firm received assistance completing their CCR and ORCA registration from US Federal Contractor Registration and was awarded the Verified Vendor seal in November 2011.
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.
