“Now that the DoD is improving more opportunities for small business contractors with CLS, now is the time to register your business in SAM using US Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR). As a procurement officer representing a division of the DoD I fully endorse and encourage businesses to have USFCR properly register their business in SAM. I have recommended numerous businesses to use USFCR in order to become properly registered and accept the bids that I have available. The best thing about USFCR is that not only do they register businesses in SAM, but they provide marketing programs like creating a business’s government-formatted website. These websites USFCR builds make it easier for us federal buyers to find registered contractors online. It is part of our process in the Naval supply center to make sure they are registered in SAM in order to be approved for these contracts. USFCR has always delivered great contractors to me and I will always recommend their valuable SAM registration service.” Rob Petyo, MH-60R/S Weapon System Manager of NAVAIR (Procurement Officer for DoD)
“I understand why so many businesses have decided to use US Federal Contractor Registration to register their business in SAM. US Federal Contractor Registration has facilitated my paperwork in a timely fashion thus far and I am currently waiting for my SAM profile to be completed. I would definitely recommend any business or any federal official unsure about government registration to reach out to US Federal Contractor Registration for help. I’m glad I did. As a government official, I cannot believe we make it this hard for businesses to become registered, thank god I found US Federal Contractor Registration.” Patricia Griffith, Information Technology Chief of the Grading and Verification Division (GVD) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)
“The transfer from CCR to SAM in July was a disaster. My SAM account had become fragmented due to the 3 million other businesses conducting the transfer as well. I couldn’t even reach a representative at the SBA helpline to fix my issue. When I called US Federal Contractor Registration to help me register and fix my fragmented account it only took them a day to properly register me in System for Awards Management (SAM) and only two days to receive my CAGE code. I will renew with them every year because of the stress they saved me. I do not know why any business would want to attempt this process on their own. Leave it to the professionals at US Federal Contractor Registration who understand the process and can get you registered quickly. This service that US Federal Contractor Registration provides is well worth the price and my company CRYOCO would have never been registered as fast. I would have never been registered without US Federal Contractor Registration and I would recommend their service to every business who wants their registration done right.” David-John Roth, owner of CYOCO & the nation’s leading expert in cryogenic engineering

“US Federal Contractor Registration sets your business up for success in government contracting. Everything US Federal Contractor Registration said was 100% right! US Federal Contractor Registration provided my company with the insight that it needed to start winning government contracts. Thanks to their advice and services, I have won a 5 year government contract for an enormous amount. Everything they said to me was right on the money! I had even spoken with government agencies that did not have as much detailed explanations about the registration process as US Federal Contractor Registration. You do have to pay for their service but it is well worth the cost once you win a government contract. Using US Federal Contractor Registration is an investment that I would tell any business to look into if they want to start winning these government contracts. They offered marketing tools and a government formatted website among many other services. Their service was extremely prompt and they always responded back to my calls or emails that same day. All their government contracting experts were the real deal. There was no question they couldn’t answer between their knowledge staff. From John Lynch helping me make the leap to Julie Topping registering my business in SAM, every bit of my service was amazing. I wish I would have known about this service years ago because I do believe it would have made a large difference in the amount of work my business is currently conducting. I chose to use US Federal Contractor Registration and they positioned me properly to bid and win on government contracts and for that I will always be grateful.” Dinisio Gilbert, Owner & President of D & C Freight Logistics LLC

“I have seen it take businesses two years to qualify on their own in order to be registered. If you are unfamiliar with the registration process for government contracts and applying your business as veteran-owned, the road can be a long one without help. When I tried to register my business as veteran-owned I presented my DD 2:14, which contained all my retirement paperwork, my combat status, and that I was honorably discharged. Even with all that information there were still problems with becoming registered. I even went as far to present my Purple Heart and there was still issues registering my business as veteran-owned. I decided to go with US Federal Contractor Registration to make sure I was registered properly and eligible for these available set-asides and leave my paperwork to the professionals. US Federal Contractor Registration did my registration in SAM and prepared me fully for these contracts. For that, I will always be very thankful.”Ronald Mueller, owner of Veteran Intrinsic Solutions

Celeste is now working diligently on marketing our firm and services so the best is yet to come!

I want to enthusiastically comment Ms. Jessica Summers for her counsel as I was going the Grants.gov process.

Dale Meyer, PhD CEO, The Meyer Group of Western Corp
“I never would have put my company in a position to bid on federal contracts or have my brand recognized by contracting officers if it wasn’t for US Federal Contractor Registration. I was walked through a seamlessprocess to establish my company in System for Award Management (SAM). We now have a CAGE code, a Capability Statement and a government formatted website. My PlacementSpecialist gave me an exact timetable of when my business’s registration would be completed. Sure enough it was all right on time as promised. We are now ready to proceed in speaking to contracting officers about our unique business. We are now well positioned to enhance our brand and start winning awards as a direct result from US Federal Contractor Registration. US Federal Contractor Registration’s Capability Statement construction is something a business cannot do without. Without them we would have had no shot getting hired by any federal buyers. I highly recommend this service as a ‘must have’ to any company hoping to establish themselves in federal government contracting.

“The tittle of SSG was given to me upon various companies through over seas private contracts which include; Blackwater Worldwide, Xe, Academi, Aegis, Lockheed Martin and the United States Army. Through my few years in the field of Homeland Security I have found many skills to add to my set list. Many of such coming from over seas operations andtraining those who are about to go to over seas operations. In between this time I have found Education to be the best way to further my mind and body to be better rounded as an individual. Gaining my Masters in Science of Management in Homeland Security (2012) and continuing on to my doctorates Degree in Homeland Security soon. I have found that this education and the skill sets that I have are only as important as the people that I know. As a contractor, I have seen the small side of the pay scales that come with the work, so in late 2011 myself along with others that I have worked with decided to open our own company and seek the full profits that come with our field of choice. Joe McNichols was the fortunate one whom helped us get our government CCR and ORCA registrations done in time to work in the new fiscal year. It is with respect that I thank him and the US Contractors Registration Organization that helped us do so. With their expertise in Federal Procurement, we were able to meet the criteria of Agencies that we wanted to work for. Leading our new companies into the world of Federal Contracting. Though we are new, I have no doubt that with the help of People like Joe McNichols that we will continue to be successful in our future.” SSG. I. Paul Winans, CEO, Hawk Intelligence

“It was a pleasure speaking with you this morning! In an era where the concept of “customer service” is often overused and under delivered, I found your time, effort and support REFRESHING! Having missed yesterday’s US Federal Contractor Registration deadline, I was anxious about the process it was going to take to renew the Columbus2020 ORCA registration. Not only did you provide an efficient and painless solution to the missed registration, you also provided education as to SAM, the System for Award Management, and the identification of having a “case manager” assigned to our account which willprovide more effective navigation and management of the Columbus2020 account. Your approach and support was greatly appreciated, AND effective! I would put you in the same class as Nordstrom’s, Starbucks, GE and Southwest Airlines as delivering high quality customer service. Thank You!” Mike Goldbeck, Vice President, Finance and Administration, Columbus Chamber
“Dear John, First of all, thanks so much for our recent communications, and for any and all assistance you have rendered our company. We are excited about the possibility of finally being able to nail down some contracts, after all these years. As you will recall, in one of our discussions I shared with you that I had been trying to get assistance from the PTAC office in Toledo, for several years now. In the year 2005, I met with the director of that office. He invited me to attend an annual event in Ohio, which was supposed to be a networking event, for government contractors. What I found was that every single person I spoke with, and I stopped communicating after a while, at that event, was only interested in stealing my ideas. Two individuals even followed up with me, and “grilled me” for more information. I could see that they weere simply wanting to take my ideas and “run with them.” I was intelligent enough not to share much. I learned, not long after, where one of the individuals did, in fact, set up a similar business, and even obtained some contracts. Later this director left PTAC-Toledo, and was replaced by a former US Air Force Colonel or General, who had been a contracting officer with the US Air Force. My impression of her was that she absolutely knew nothing about federal contracting, except for the contracting officer’s side, which she was good at. Later on, then, she left PTAC-Toledo, and the last director took over. What I experienced there was that he plugged in a whole bunch of NAICS codes that did not apply to our business. I started receiving all sorts of solicitations for possible contracts in areas that I was absolutely not interested in, or did not qualify for – building bridges and what not, for example. I feel much better, now that your company is involved, and I look forward to talking with Melissa Daughtry soon.” Dr. Jerry E. Garrett, Ed.D., President and CEO, Dr. Jerry Garrett Training, Seminars, & Consulting, Inc.
“Hello, today I called your general information number from the website on contractor enrollment and was very fortunate to have the call taken by Mark Georges. Mr. Georges was extremely patient and helpful in guiding me through the process to enroll as a federal contractor. I recently experienced a fire in my home and had limited computer capability so Mr. Georges did everything possible to enroll me using fax and email. I want to commend him for his patience and professionalism. He was very helpful and reflects very well on your organization. Thank you.” Tara Hamilton
“Peter: Since 2005 I have been applying for Grant Proposals and the old government systems were so cumbersome, the Grant Application Process was very difficult to navigate, to the point of being a waste to time and energy. All I have to show for all the years of Grant Proposal work is a half dozen 3 ring binders, each full of application work that went only to consume time with no results. I am a inventor, Patent numbers 5,473,957 and 5,150,626. I am a true entrepreneur, paying out of pocket for Patents, research, fabrication machine work to create working models. Paying out of pocket to Zero Gravity Test Flights with Zero Gravity Corporation. Peter you contacted me 17 August 2012; with e-mail, and since then your team, Manager James Logan, and application processor Julie Topping, US FEDERAL CONTRACTING REGISTRATION has worked with me to fill out the worksheets required for registration. Today I received phone calls from you and James Logan that application is being submitted to SAM by your staff. I am truly impressed by the speed and professional help that your staff has accomplished thus far.
