Once you are awarded your GSA Schedule contract, it does not automatically mean you will have orders streaming in from government agencies. Knowing what government contracting opportunities are available is an essential part of being a successful contractor. To significantly increase your chances of contracting success, you should be proactive about finding opportunities that fit your solutions. The good thing is, there are several GSA resources you can use to discover business in the federal marketplace, like SAM.gov. We put together this blog to show you the step-by-step process on how you can use the site to easily search for procurement opportunities.
If you are a small business owner, your chances for federal procurement are greater than you may think. The federal government mandates set-asides to achieve small business goals and give small businesses a fair chance to win government contracts. Set-asides are exclusively reserved for small businesses, which limits competition and increases the odds as defined in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 19.5. At Winvale, we work with a wide variety of small businesses and help them find their niche in the public sphere. In this blog, we will cover the different types of small business set-asides that your business may qualify for.
