How do you become a successful Government contractor?
Start the new year off right. Arm yourself with the knowledge you need and the support you require by tapping into the expertise Select GCR brings to your business.
Step 1: Register on SAM.gov
The System for Award Management (SAM) is the primary database for government contractors. Register your business on SAM.gov to ensure eligibility for federal contracts, as well as loans and grants for your small business. Select GCR can guide you through this process, ensuring that your company’s profile is complete and optimized for visibility.
Step 2: Identify Your NAICS Codes
Determine the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes that align with your business activities. This step is crucial for accurately identifying opportunities relevant to your industry. Select GCR can assist in selecting the most strategic NAICS codes for your business.
Step 3: Create a Capability Statement
Craft a compelling capability statement that succinctly communicates your business’s core competencies, past performance, and unique value proposition. Select GCR’s marketing expertise can be instrumental in designing a polished capability statement that makes a lasting impression on contracting officers.
Step 4: Research Contract Opportunities
You could regularly monitor government procurement portals such as beta.SAM.gov and USASpending.gov to identify potential contract opportunities. Select GCR Pro is a propriatary software that has excellent market research capability. You can get filtered results daily or weekly of contract opportunities within your industry, NAICS, or keywords. Select GCR Pro’s research capabilities can help streamline this process, ensuring you stay informed about opportunities that align with your business objectives.
