UNDERSTANDING FEDERAL BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES AND FEDBIZOPPS IN FIRMS
The governments have realized that supporting the business community could propel the country’s economy to greater lengths hence leading to increase in GDP (gross domestic product).
Federal Business Opportunities are commonly known as Fed Biz Ops or FBO. Federal procurement guidelines require that bids worth $25,000 or more to be published through FedBizOpps.
It’s also important to note that guides on FedBizOpps do not include state and local opportunities, state and local contracts can usually be found on your state or county procurement portal.
The act of incorporating creates a legal entity separate from its shareholders or its members. Contracting with the Government can have many benefits.
The corporate tax rate is generally lower than the individual tax rate. In some cases, incorporation offers some financial benefits.
For example the number of minority-owned businesses continues to grow and also brings value to the U.S. economy. There is a common misconception that the Federal Government does not offer enough funding opportunities specifically targeted at increasing and supporting the participation.
The U.S. uses fedbizopps for General Services Administration integrated with Federal Government computer system, the system is subject to monitoring and individuals found performing unauthorized activities and are subject to disciplinary action including criminal prosecution.
After using FedBizOpps you may find that your service offer is a better fit for state and local bidding opportunities rather than federally-administered contracts.
To take advantage of chances published on FedBizOpps, you are required to have an active Sam.gov account as well as a Duns and Cage number.
The existence of these Government exceptional risks requires the establishment of compliance mechanisms within the company.
These include special socio-economic preferences that afford opportunities to new and small business contractors that do not exist in the commercial marketplace and the comfort of dealing with a generally reliable customer.
Many federal agencies have what is known as an Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) or an Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP).
Each agency releases a projection of anticipated procurement activities that includes potential small business opportunities.
After all, we trust them to make the right procurement decisions with our taxpayer dollars. Convincing government buyers that you’re a worthwhile business partner who can help them achieve their goals requires a different approach that one you’re used to seeing in the marketable sector. Cooperation and teaming is very important in government contracting.
