System For Award Management (SAM.gov) Registration Assistance
US Federal Contractor Registration is a third-party registration firm who charges to complete a Full Service System for Award Management (SAM) Registration. Our service includes a dedicated case manager to physically process the SAM paperwork on the client’s behalf. The Government offers free registration forms at SAM.gov, but SAM will not physically process the forms for a client. All fees paid to US Federal Contractor Registration are for the filing of government paperwork on a client’s behalf, saving the entity time and ensuring complete and accurate filings.
Why Register in SAM?
The United States Federal Government spent over $400 Billion during the 2014 fiscal year. Legislation such as the Small Business Act and the American Reinvestment & Recovery Act team up to create equal opportunities for small businesses to participate in federal procurement. The Federal Government is required to set at least 23% of all contracting dollars exclusively for small businesses.
The Federal Government purchases products and services from just about every industry you can think of. From space ship parts to staplers, the Government is constantly contracting businesses that are properly registered in the SAM database.
Winning a government contract can be very rewarding for any business, but it can also be very difficult if they don’t know where to start. Procurement officers are forced to spend the general taxpayers money wisely, so having all of the proper tools and materials for government marketing can be a significant advantage for a business looking to win contracts.
What We Do
In order for a small business to win a government contract, they have to properly present themselves to procurement officers with the correction information. There are different channels to use when searching for an open government contract. From complex bidding procedures to a simple phone call, with the right knowledge and information, businesses can cut a lot of time out of their venture to winning contracts.
US Federal Contractor Registration supplies small businesses with the correct marketing procedures and materials used by Fortune 500 Companies who have successfully won government contracts. USFCR acts as a consultant or accountant who assists with the process of registering and marketing
