Going from the Vendor List to being a Preferred Vendor

We already know that “Business Development” is a critical step in the development, growth and continued viability of our firms.  We already know that we must somehow let the primes and federal government know who we are.  We already know that subcontracting can be a perfect vehicle to break into the world of contracting.

We already know that going after micro purchases or jobs at the Simplified Acquisition Threshold (SAT) is also another way to break into the world of contracting.  We already know the best ways to make these critical steps a reality is through Networking, Marketing, attending site visits, progress briefings, pre-bid conferences and asking for work.

We already know these things are good for our businesses but “How” and “Why” do they really make a difference.  Getting registered and certified in all the right places is a game changer because countless others don’t realize they need to do it and thus will not do it.  That simple step alone sets you apart from upwards of 95% of the other small businesses out here.

Virtually every public contract opportunity has strict diversity goals that “MUST” be met.  If no one knows whom you are and what your capabilities and qualifications are, then who loses?  More tips on this topic later.
