US Federal Contractor Registration is alerting contractors to get registered for FEMA contracts as a new tropical system develops in the Atlantic.

Tropical Depression Nine is creating extra anxiety for officials in Tampa, FL who are preparing for next week’s Republican National Convention, according to Bay News 9. The storm’s projected track would take it on a collision course with the Sunshine State as a major hurricane – at the very same time the RNC is scheduled to be taking place.

The NOAA lists the peak of hurricane season occurring between mid-August and late October. A total of 12-17 names storms have been predicted for the 2012 season, including 2 or 3 major hurricanes.

To qualify for any government contracts, businesses must get a DUNS number and complete SAM registration.

The System for Award Management, or SAM, has been deployed in order to replace the legacy “siloed” procurement websites, including CCR and ORCA. Persistent issues with SAM have been reported on the Contracting Tips Blog.

In order to compete for FEMA contracts, vendors must complete a FEMA Vendor Profile in addition to SAM registration. All vendors are also strongly encouraged by the Small Business Administration to implement an aggressive marketing campaign in addition to the basic registration requirements.

To help businesses quickly prepare for FEMA contracts, US Federal Contractor Registration now helps their clients complete the FEMA Vendor Profile, in addition to assisting them with their SAM registration. US Federal Contractor Registration's government marketing services include the creation of a Dynamic Small Business Search profile for the vendor as well.
