  • Where do we begin? - Researching, locating, and bidding on government contracts is not as simple as one size fits all. The type of commodity you sell, the type of service you provide, the company size, geographic limitations, and many other factors will determine your potential customer and how you can practically approach government contracting. Step one, define your business by type: Construction : General Contractor or specific trade. Commercial buildings, road construction, or residential. Bonding limitations will have a major impact on the contract size. Geographic limitations will also limit your choices. Services : Professional, technical, or labor contract. Major types include technology, training, janitorial, and non-construction trades. Company size, geographic limitation, and diversity in skills may limit choices, but joint ventures and contract labor agreements can increase opportunities. Commercial Commodities : These commodities are developed by the manufacture, and offered for sale to both commercial business and to government. Credit Card/Micro Purchases and GSA contract are common. Military Specification Manufacturing : The military is sole user: The military provides drawings, specifications, and you custom build to their specs.
  • FAR Part 13 http://www.acqnet.gov/far/current/html/FARTOCP13.html#226850 FAR Part 13 prescribes simplified acquisition procedures. 48 CFR IV https://acc.dau.mil/CommunityBrowser.aspx?id=129335 $3,000 for commodities, $2,500 for Services, and $2,000 for construction. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Under $3,000 Micro-Purchases are exempt from the Small Business Act, the Buy American Act, and Open Competition. Mostly credit card $3,000 to $100K Simplified Acquisitions , are mostly EDI or EC transactions and are normally small business set-sides Over $100K Large Open Solicitations are normally, but not always open to all business. updated 07/16/06/gvh
