Demand for Federal Contractors up in Advance of Jonas

Screen Shot 2015-09-23 at 3.10.31 PMFlights across the northeast have been cancelled. Snow plows in states along the eastern seaboard are on alert. Power companies, like Charlotte, N.C.-based Duke Energy, have reallocated resources to North Carolina and other states expected to be hardest hit this weekend by “Jonas.” And government agencies, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), are plotting the storm and gearing up to lead recovery and relief efforts after the storm — which some believe may rank as one of the 10 worst winter storms in history — subsides.

Companies interested in supporting these federal relief and recovery efforts must be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) and also registered with FEMA. Once these registrations are in place, FEMA can issue contracts to the companies, without the company needing to bid on it.

Because of this, US Federal Contractor Registration, the world’s largest third-party government registration firm, is doing its part to help. It has staff working around the clock to help companies complete their registration and also to provide information about working as a federal contractor.

With the storm expected to dump more than two feet of snow in Washington, D.C., between 12-18 inches of snow in Philadelphia, and upward of between eight and 12 inches of snow in New York, relief and recovery efforts may last for more than one week after blizzard conditions subside.

“We always recommend companies that provide services and products that the federal government can use in the wake of a storm or natural disaster complete their registration as soon as possible,” said Eric Knellinger, US Federal Contractor Registration president. “Having the registration already in place means they can be tapped into service quickly, sometimes even before storms such as Jonas hit.”

US Federal Contractor Registration can help companies get their DUNS number, register with SAM, complete and submit a FEMA vendor profile, and even get information about their company, products, and/or services in front of top procurement officers.

If you’re interested in working as a federal contractor, call US Federal Contractor Registration at 877-252-2700.
