What is a GSA Subcontractor?

By: Marissa Sims
June 29th, 2022

Becoming a government contractor can be daunting for small businesses without enough experience to meet the complex requirements. However, subcontracting is one way small businesses can get their hands on federal government dollars and gain performance experience in the industry.

4 Tips to Leverage the Q4 Spending Spree

By: John Abel
June 22nd, 2022

It’s the most wonderful time of the year—if you look at the numbers, government Q4 (July through September) of each year are far and away the busiest months for government contractors. In recent years, Q4 of the government fiscal year has accounted for roughly 1/3 of all government contract dollars awarded throughout the year. This increase in spending can be attributed to an array of reasons including later award dates due to delays in budget availability, greater negotiation leverage, and adapting to potential new requirements that may factor into a particular procurement.
