Why do business with the government Why do business with the government Presentation Transcript

  • Why Do Business with the Government With a budget of more than $500 billion, the U.S. government is the largest consumer of products and services in the world. Federal, state and regional agencies represent a tremendous market for small businesses. Many businesses have learned that government contracting work can be a steady and reliable source of income since the government must continue business in both good times and bad.
  • Federal Spending  $2.5 trillion per year  $8.49 billion a day  $28.5 million per hour  $475,000 per minute  Almost $8,000 per second
  • The GSA The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is the purchasing agent for the government with an annual procurement spend of tens of billions of dollars. The role of the agency is to simplify the buying process and to aggregate the government’s buying power to achieve the best value for the hundreds of federal agencies, as well as state and local buyers who are eligible to participate.
  • What is a GSA Schedule? The GSA Schedule can be thought of as a collection of pre-negotiated contracts. Procurement managers from government agencies can view these agreements and make purchases directly from GSA Schedule holders knowing that all legal obligations have been met and approved by GSA. There is no bidding on orders between $3,000 and $150,000.
  • GSA eBuy What about orders over $150,000? Procurement agents will list their need for product/service and schedule holders will have first access to bid on these contracts. This is an electronic, paperless procedure called eBuy.
  • Benefit of GSA Schedule Using the GSA Schedules Program, GSA establishes long-term government-wide contracts with commercial businesses to provide access to more than 11 million products and services. Small businesses will be able to realize the benefits of government contracting by becoming an approved vendor on the GSA Schedule, which can lead to increased visibility and credibility for their business.
  • Making the Most of Socio-Economic Status The Government is MANDATED to spend up to 43% on set aside businesses. The government sets aside 43% of its total budget for businesses.23% to (S) or small business and 3-5% additional for any other Socio-Economic listed below.
