The U.S. government purchases a surprising number of products and services each year. There are also many small businesses who have products or services they would like to sell to the government. Luckily, a large percentage of the billions in yearly contracts are legally required to go to small companies seeking to do business with the government at the local, state, federal, and international levels.
So, why don’t all small businesses take advantage of government contracts? Because it’s not easy, and most business owners don’t understand the process to win government contracts. For starters, the government requires small business owners to go through a rigid qualification process. But, once you qualify, you’ll be eligible to take a piece of the billion dollar pie.
