Being a qualified contractor with the winning bid is only part of what you need to think about when you decide to go after federal work. You also have to make sure you have everything in place to meet the requirements, demands, and expectations of your client – the federal agency.
Did you know that…
• You must have the right type of accounting system to handle a federal contract?
• You may be required to have an affirmative action plan or ethics policy in place?
• Even as a small business, there are labor requirements you must meet?
• Landing a large contract may result in different and additional legal requirements?
• Certain types of teaming arrangements may result in different requirements?
• When you win a contract, you are expected to be able to meet all the project’s specifications – such as technology, expertise, labor, cash flow, etc.?
• When you register in SAM, you are legally certifying that all information you input is accurate?
• Partnering with a large corporation could eliminate your status as a small business on a project?
Answers to these questions and many more will be covered at this workshop. So, even though your product or service is great, your price is perfect, the team is in place, and you’re ready to work – make sure the rest of your house is in order and really ready to do business with the federal government!
