Welcome to ContractSecrets.com. Our goal here is to help contractors and sub-contractors be successful in landing contracts with the U.S. Government, with a special focus on FEMA and the U.S. Military.
The U.S. Government is ready to do business, on a competitive basis, with competent firms that can supply the services or products that it needs. Most purchasing activies in the government are especially interested in contracting with small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses, and women-owned businesses.
As you pursue your interest in securing contracts with the U.S. Government, you should take the time to learn how the government conducts its business, and begin seeking out government purchasing offices that buy the particular services or products that your company can supply.
If you have never done business with the Federal Government before, then you should become aware of the fact that the basic contracting rules for all government agencies are set forth in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). Additional rules which are unique for the particular agency that you are working with can be found in that agency's supplements for the FAR. These publications can be reviewed at various government purchasing or contract administration offices, at any Small Business Administration (SBA) office, and many of these publications can also be found online at http://www.acquisition.gov/far/
We have included links on the right-hand side of this page to articles containing extracts from the FAR on many of the most frequently researched topics. Please feel free to review any of them at your convenience to get a basic feeling for the topic. And, naturally, you should always check the most recent version of the FAR and any supplements that may have been updated/changed in the meantime.
