Did you know that the Federal government spends more than $500 billion in contracting dollars every year? U.S. law currently establishes a goal that 23% of prime Federal contract dollars go to small businesses, and yet, it has fallen short of this goal for the past several years. On today’s show, our guest host, business consultant Mark Collier, sits down with Cynthia Harper of C. Harper Enterprises, to discuss how small businesses can take better advantage of the Federal marketplace.
Government contracting and procurement are purchasing processes that solicit goods and services from public businesses. They can be incredibly lucrative for small businesses and in this segment, Mark and Cynthia discuss the numerous benefits that government contracting brings to a wide variety of industries.
The pair also tackle the role of capture managers and the value that they bring to small businesses seeking government contracting opportunities. Finding and engaging a capture manager can put your business on the road to success, and earn your business a substantial piece of the federal contracting budget.
