Orlando, FL (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
When Hurricane Sandy crashed into Northeast American earlier this week, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reported having $3.6 billion dollars worth of relief funds. This massive amount of funds generally goes towards relief efforts for those in need of food, water, and basic necessities. However, an extremely large portion of the funds goes to contractor employed by the government to fix damages and repair fallen or broken structures. However, according to the Patriot News based out of Pennsylvania, there are contractors posing to represent non-profit organization and collect money up front or scam for donations. The United States government is urging individuals to check with the Better Business Bureau through their database to determine if the company offering to help with natural disaster support is a tax-exempt group listed with the IRS.
Contractors can use no-bid contracts with FEMA in order to help out on the spot with aid and support. No-bid contracting gives the benefit of the business that is registered for federal employment to go to a FEMA site and help in the relief efforts to help rebuild and reconstruct damages from Hurricane Sandy immediately. FEMA has a need for products and services in virtually all industries. With the amount of damage to New Jersey alone, contractors nationwide should begin preparing for future contracting demands by checking their registration status.

In order to bid on and work government contracts, businesses must obtain a DUNS number and must complete a System for Awards Management (SAM) registration. Submission of a FEMA Vendor Profile is also required in order to win FEMA disaster relief contracts. 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. 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.
