US Federal Contractor Registration Launches The Simplified Acquisition Program

By Celeste Osborne

US Federal Contractor Registration has introduced a new way for small businesses to break into the federal marketplace and start winning contract awards. This new offering, the Simplified Acquisition Program, has already proven effective for new contractors.

Simplified Acquisition rules, mandated by the Federal Acquisition Regulations, are the basis for the Simplified Acquisition Program. These rules define Simplified Acquisitions as having a value between $2,500 and $150,000. In some industries, however, these rules may apply to contracts as high as $6.5 million.

Simplified Acquisition contracts are not only a boon to small businesses - they can also help large businesses earn significant revenue through contract awards. Simplified Acquisition contracts also help set-asides improve their prospects in the federal marketplace, including disadvantaged, women-owned, veteran-owned, HUBZone, and service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns.

Vendors in the Simplified Acquisition Program are highly encouraged to reach out and contact federal purchasing officers directly - this is in fact a key component of the program! This allows businesses to learn about upcoming contracts before they are even released, as well as make vital networking contacts. Most purchasing officers will not advertise contracts under $25,000 on FedBizOpps (FBO) so the only way to learn about these opportunities is to develop a relationship with that particular buyer. Payment options for these types of contracts also vary, ranging from SMART Pay Cards to even cash. Blank purchase agreements and miscellaneous purchase agreements are also used in simplified acquisition contracts. This is generally not allowed through the normal bidding process since larger contracts must be reported on the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS).

To help small businesses take advantage of these opportunities, US Federal Contractor Registration has developed their Simplified Acquisition Program. This program has helped generate millions of dollars of revenue for many struggling vendors, including Mac Made Easy, Creative Tent International, Excel Concrete, Suburban Surgical Co., Inc, and Nancys I.T. Guy. The Simplified Acquisition Program includes everything vendors need to start doing business with the federal government, including System for Award Management registration, a seven page website in the standard Federal Government format, branded domain name and hosting, search engine optimization, customized official government profile, monthly email bid notification and contract support.

US Federal Contractor Registration provides business owners with all of the necessary materials to start winning these available simplified acquisition contracts. With the government spending over $400 billion every year, there are countless government contracts that can be won utilizing a US Federal Contractor Registration Simplified Acquisition Program.
