Socioeconomic Certifications

Every year, the government is federally required to do business with a certain percentage of each class of disadvantaged businesses. In order to facilitate this, Socioeconomic Certifications were born. Each certification comes with its own benefits and set-aside contracts that are not available to non-certified firms. These programs help historically disadvantaged small businesses succeed in the government marketplace and compete with larger, more established firms.

Unsolicited Proposals to Federal Agencies

Creating and submitting an unsolicited proposal to a federal agency can effectively position your company to contract directly with federal decision makers without a formal solicitation or request for proposal (RFP). The best part of the process for businesses is that the result is a direct contract award with ZERO competitors because you are the one who developed the SOW requirements. The unsolicited proposal process can be used for products, services, innovative technology or a better way for agencies to meet their missions - all based on your expertise and ability to help meet an agency need.
