Did you know that government contracts are a tremendous financial opportunity for small businesses? The U.S. government is the largest customer in the world. It buys all types of products and services — in both large and small quantities — and it’s required by law to consider buying from small businesses.

The government wants to buy from small businesses for several reasons, including:

  • To ensure that large businesses don’t “muscle out” small businesses
  • To gain access to the new ideas that small businesses provide
  • To support small businesses as engines of economic development and job creation
  • To offer opportunities to disadvantaged socio-economic groups

  • Government Contracting Suitability
  • How the Government Buys Goods and Services
  • Am I Eligible Tool – SBA Certify
  • How to Register your business with the Federal Government
  • Marketing Your Business and Identifying Federal Opportunities
