Did you know that less than 10% of ALL mandatory small business purchases placed by procurement officers of less than $250,000 make it to posting on FedBizOpps? Want to know where are the other 90% are getting awarded?

Those contracts under $250,000 are already awarded under the Micro-Purchase rules or the Simplified Acquisition rules long before they have a chance to be posted on fedbizopps. .

Micro-Purchases have recently been increased from $3500 and less to any purchase for $10,000 or less can be made with a credit card immediately without bids. If you are ready and proactive, the procurement officer will see that, your chances of landing this order are greatly increased.

Simplified Acquisition mandatory rules that mandates orders these sized orders go to qualified small businesses government vendors has increase from a maximum of $150,000 to orders of $10,000+ to $250,000 and the procurement officer only has to find 2 small businesses qualified to submit a bid. If timed right, you would only have 1 other competitor for this order.

The Federal Government spent over $105 Billion exclusively with qualified registered small businesses in 2017.
