For some time now contractors have had to constantly search throughout the internet to track down information on government contracting. This would require most businesses to jump from source to source to find exactly what they are looking for. Well now having several windows open and trying to read through all the information across the web is a thing of the past. GovernmentContractingTips.com revamped their First Steps to Government Contracting Guide now providing everything a small business getting started in government contracting would need to know to hit the ground running in 2013. The site is broken down into lessons to guide contractors on how to become registered to marketing their business. From descriptive points to instructional videos, this is a federal contractors go-to site.
To help level the playing field and give all vendors a fair shot at government contracts GovernmentContractingTips.com created this guide for small businesses. Max K. Timko, host of ‘The SAM Assistance Program,’ quoted “The guide will introduce new vendors to the information and provide strategies that will carry them from just thinking about government contracts to actually placing their first bid. Simply located on the top menu bar of Government Contracting Tips.com, this is an extremely knowledgable source for businesses interested in learning more about government contracting. It is a definite must read for small businesses!”
In an effort to help new and struggling vendors find success in government contracting, the “First Steps to Government Contracting” guide contains links to articles covering subjects such as researching the federal marketplace, contractor registration, marketing to government agencies and placing bids on contracts. The videos of ‘The SAM Assistance Program’ are provided to break down specific sections that can easily be viewed and referenced. No business should start the registration process in System for Award Management (SAM) before consulting the ‘First Steps’ webpage. There are sections that are broken down into lessons to easily guide visitors through the forum. The guide mentions several ways to connect with federal procurement officers, stay updated on available contracts, and learn about current set-asides a business can qualify for.
