    ConsultingThe U.S. Small Business Administration’s Procurement Center Representatives (PCRs) assist small businesses in obtaining federal contracts through six area offices across the U.S. and its territories. PCRs view many acquisition and procurement strategies before they are announced.

    This enables them to influence opportunities that should be set-aside for small business concerns including all socio-economic categories of 8(a) (Small Disadvantaged Businesses), Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB), Economically Disadvantaged WOSB (EDWOSB), Service-connected Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDV), and Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) small businesses. As a result of this privilege they fall under the Procurement Integrity Act (PIA) and cannot divulge pre-solicitation information.

    Have you ever wondered what it takes to sell your products or services to the federal government? Perhaps you've attended a workshop on doing business with the government at some point in the past. Maybe you even heard about the billions of dollars the U.S. Government spends every year buying goods and services from entrepreneurs just like you.

    At this week’s Essence Festival, MBDA is offering panels and technical assistance to help demystify this process.  At our Leap. Run. Grow slate of business development sessions, I’m eager to connect with emerging and established entrepreneurs. The panel I am moderating on July 1 is focused on government contracts, and it is titled, “Are You Ready to Do Business with the Federal Government?”

    Digital ResourcesOn October 1 the Office of Small Business Utilization (OSBU) updated their web resources with a more diagnostic approach to helping companies understand the steps to working with GSA.  www.GSA.gov/osbu takes the information that small businesses need and provides it in bite-sized pieces that are easy to process. The landing page provides a virtual door for each business in every step of the process!

    For example, if a company is new to the government they are encouraged to watch a series of short videos to help them determine if working with GSA is the right next step.  If the business has worked with the government before, they may only be looking to pursue and win business or maybe how to maintain and renew their contract.

    Federal ContractingThe U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) recently issued a final rule authorizing federal agencies to award sole-source contracts to women-owned small businesses eligible for the Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contract Program. Effective October 14, 2015, the rule levels the playing field for women-owned small businesses across the federal contracting marketplace.

    “Women-owned businesses are growing three times faster than their counterparts, yet the federal government has not achieved its goal of awarding 5 percent of federal contracts to women.  By granting contracting officers this new authority to award sole-source contracts to women-owned businesses, SBA is taking a major step forward in leveling the playing field and supporting our country’s dynamic female entrepreneurs,” said SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet. “After all, if we want a more diverse supply chain, Uncle Sam needs to lead by example.”
