St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) April 13, 2012
US Federal Contractor Registration is currently offering a free review of businesses’ CCR and ORCA registration.
To qualify for government contracts, businesses must obtain a DUNS number and must complete CCR and ORCA registration. Successful contractors also develop aggressive government marketing plans which include the creation of a profile on government websites such as the SBA’s Dynamic Small Business Search and automated bid notifications to their email. Eric Knellinger, President of US Federal Contractor Registration, is strongly encouraging small businesses to ensure their registration is complete and correct so they don't miss out on the new opportunities available in government contracting. “It only takes a few minutes to get your registration reviewed,” commented Mr. Knellinger, “But a single mistake could potentially cost a vendor thousands of dollars in lost revenue if they are denied a contract or can’t receive a payment on time.” Information on how to win federal government contracts can be requested through the Contractor Helpline at (877) 252-2700 ext 1.
To help small businesses avoid costly errors, US Federal Contractor Registration is offering a free evaluation and review of vendors’ government registration, including their CCR registration and ORCA filing. During the evaluation, a Placement Specialist will review the company’s government contractor registration to ensure it is complete, contains the correct information and is optimized to help them win government contracts. To receive this free evaluation, interested businesses should contact the toll free Contractor Helpline at (877) 252-2700 ext 1. Placement Specialists can also prepare a free government contracting profitability assessment to help business owners review government spending trends within their industry and identify current contracting opportunities.
In order to meet federal mandates that at least 23% of all contracting dollars be awarded to small businesses, more companies capable of handling these federal contracts must complete their CCR registration and ORCA filing immediately. Every year, the federal government falls short of its procurement goal. In 2009, only 22% of the $442 billion set aside for small businesses was awarded, according to US Federal Contractor Registration. “There are not enough qualified, properly registered businesses,” said Dan Driscoll, treasurer at US Federal Contractor Registration. “If there were, the government wouldn’t have a problem meeting that goal.”
Over $144 Billion in federal contracts have been awarded so far during Fiscal Year 2012 according to USASpending and there are currently over 29,000 opportunities listed on the Federal Business Opportunities website.
