US Federal Contractor Registration Urges Small Business Involvement In Government Contracting For 2013

updated | Author's Website

Since the year 2000, the United States government has spent $5.56 Trillion on government contracts. These government contracts are awarded to businesses that have been properly registered in System for Award Management. With the 2013 fiscal year underway, has already recorded that the United States government has spent $234.6 billion dollars on government contracts. Last year in 2012, the federal government spent a total of $517 billion on government contracts. The GSA, along with other large agencies like the DoD and NASA, have been collaborating to make sure government spending is more organized and justifiable. Currently, programs such as the GSA’s OASIS Program and Small Business Acquisition contracts have helped the government set-aside contracts for qualified businesses that deserve federal benefits. These programs allow small businesses the resources and opportunities to work for federal procurement officers in different agencies. According to a quote by Jim Ghiloni, Director of the GSA’s OASIS Program, “OASIS is an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract for professional services and will streamline the procurement process by vetting companies for agencies ahead of time, rather than evaluating dozens of bids, agencies could expect three to five OASIS vendors bidding for their business.”

The United States Federal Government devotes 23% of their government contracting dollars to small businesses that qualify for federal set-asides. That is why it is so very important for a business to find out if they are due federal set-asides. Federal Set-Asides are available for businesses that are considered to be a Small Business, Woman Owned, Service Disabled Veteran Owned and Minority Owned. Other set-asides and programs include the 8(a) Program, GSA Schedule, and HUBZone Program. Once a business becomes registered and approved for these set-asides, they will be given more opportunities to win government contracts.

Eric Knellinger, President of US Federal Contractor Registration stated, “This OASIS program is going to help both parties conduct business more effectively. Small businesses will get the contracts they deserve and the GSA will be able to regulate their spending for each contract. These uncapped contracts provide limitless potential and dollars for a small business involved. Small businesses must be registered in SAM in order to participate in the OASIS program. Small businesses that are not registered are missing out on millions of dollars that would just end up going to big business if they are not involved. If small business doesn’t stand up then large businesses will continue to take these contracts. The time to register in SAM for this OASIS program is right now, not in the summer when it is first released. Make sure your business is ready and prepared for the ribbon cutting of the GSA’s OASIS program and all the uncapped opportunity that comes with it. We here at US Federal Contractor Registration already provide the marketing and portfolio tools to get a business awarded government contracts and prepared for the release of the OASIS program. We want to make sure small businesses not only survive, but thrive in government contracting.”
