Bidding Government Contracts Requires Patience And Know How


Many companies make their primary profits from government contracts. This is no easy task, however, because the government is not exactly a well oiled machine, in fact when the government sends out a Request for Bid (RFP) often their paperwork reads like a mystery fraught with twists and turns.

However, Bidding Government Contracts is not impossible, it just requires that you understand what they want and the you bid on proposals properly.

One key to Bidding Government Contracts is understanding Federal Acquisitions Regulations (FAR). The reason you need to know and understand this is because the government has specific requirements for businesses from revealing their finances to having a certain percentage of minorities working for you.

Understand the FAR will help you better understand how to bid on a government RFP and not get overly confused about everything they request in a formal RFP.

Another thing you have to do if you are interested in Bidding Government Contracts is to sign up on the Central Contract Registry (CCR). This is a place where you briefly describe your business, for example construction.

If your company does multiple things then make sure that you make a list, when an RFP goes out for something your company excels at, you want to make sure that you are on the list to receive it so you can determine whether or not you want to make a bid.

You are also going to have to put in some legwork if you are going to be Bidding Government Contracts. You just don't end up in a database mysteriously. You are going to have to call every agency that sends out RFPs in areas where your business can contribute and get your company name added to the list.

While the government will not hesitate to send you an RFP, whether you are a big or small business, they cannot send you one if they do not know who you are, so get yourself out there.

The final thing that you have to remember is that the government is a stickler for rules and regulations. When they send out an RFP they expect respondents to follow their directions perfectly. If you miss even one thing, no matter how small, it is grounds for refusal to accept your proposal and you are out of luck until next time.

Grants vs. Contracts

By Lisa DeMaio
Commonly folks have asked me what the technical difference is between a contract and a grant. The difference is not about the dollar value or who the buying entity is nor the kind of work being done. Instead it is about the legal concept of default. In my eyes, the corner stone of whether something should be called a grant or a contract lies in whether one is legally bound to produce results as one is in a contractual relationship or whether you are simply granted funds to do something. Did you get that nuance? Perhaps that is oversimplifying it.
