Networx, the General Services Administration’s (GSA) telecommunications contract has saved their department over $678 million in federal contracting dollars. Bill Lewis, the Networx Program Manager stated, “With these services, rather than being tied to a desk and desk phone, federal employees now have access to information wherever they are, through services like video chat, virtual private networks and web conferencing.” The Networx contract provides up-to-date technical advances that aides federal employees in their day to day schedule. This is not only said to save funding but also increases productivity tenfold. However, in order for the GSA to receive the products they need through the Networx contract, contractors must first be registered in System for Award Manager (SAM).
GovernmentContractingTips.com has been assisting registered small business contractors with all of their questions regarding the Government-Wide Acquisition contracts (GWACs). Before a business can start bidding on available contracts they must be registered in System for Award Management (SAM). Most businesses find the SAM registration very difficult and tedious. It can take days or even weeks to fill out the registration if a business is not familiar with the registration process. That is why businesses all over the country have been hiring third party registration firms to conduct the SAM registration for their business.
