WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - December 02, 2016) - Completing a registration in the System for Award Management (SAM) is just the first step to becoming a successful registered contractor. After a contractor completes this required registration, it's time to:

  • Verify that the business is set up to receive bid notifications (which means the business is emailed each time an opportunity on which it is qualified to bid is posted)
  • Determine if the business qualifies for any small business set-aside contracts (which are contracts the government is legally required to make available for small businesses)
  • Develop a marketing strategy
  • Put together a capability statement
  • Create a list of its past performance (which is essentially a company resume)
  • Locate opportunities
  • Research the industry
  • Register on grants.gov (if interested in applying for grants)
  • Complete a FEMA registration

Taking those necessary steps aren't easy, especially when a company is working alone. That's why it's strongly recommended that a company work with an on-boarding specialist who can review these items, help develop strategies for tackling each item on the list, and make sure it has the proper tools in place to succeed as a government contractor.

By working with an on-boarding specialist, companies are guaranteed to get expert advice and more quickly ramp up as a government contractor. Most times, an on-board assessment is scheduled after a company completes its SAM Registration, but companies that aren't registered in SAM are also encouraged to work with a federal contracting specialist to make sure they are ready to start winning government contracts.

US Federal Contractor Registration, the world's largest third-party government registration firm, is available to complete this on-boarding assessment with current contractors as well as with companies interested in becoming a contractor. For more information, call us at 877-252-2700, ext. 1.
