Federal Registration Assistance
We handle all of the registration paperwork for you, enabling you to bid on any federal contract. The time required to complete the registration process, often in excess of 20 hours, has been identified as the biggest obstacle preventing new businesses from getting registered. The demands of running a business in today’s tough economic climate means that business owners often can’t afford to take on a project that can easily take several weeks to complete. In most cases we can complete all the required registrations in a week. Let us register your firm so you can concentrate on running your business.
This service includes:
- Obtaining a DUNS number – the first step to compete for government contracts – it is a unique 9 digit number issued by Dun & Bradstreet to identify your firm.
- System for Award Management (SAM) – the primary vendor database for the U.S. Federal Government. Since October 1, 2003, it is federally mandated that any business wishing to do business with the federal government be registered before being awarded a contract.
