Facts About Contracting with the Government

Filed under: Prosock Machine Shop talk — Tags: , — admin @ 12:20 pm

Facts About Contracting with the Government
On the average, there are 2,000 to 5,000 new government contracting opportunities
available each day in all industry categories.
A Small Business Set-Aside Program (SBSA) was developed to help assure that small
businesses are awarded a fair proportion of government contracts by reserving
certain government purchases exclusively for participation by small business
concerns.
Acquisitions of supplies or services that has an anticipated dollar value exceeding
$3000, but not over $100,000 is automatically reserved exclusively for small
businesses (This is a Federal Law) and shall be set aside for obtaining offers from
two or more responsible small businesses that are competitive in terms of market
prices, quality, and delivery. If the contracting officer receives only one acceptable
offer from a responsible small business in response to a set-aside, the contracting
officer should make an award to that firm.
Program 8(a) contracts awarded in Fiscal Year 2004 totaled over 5.3 million.
America’s 9.1 million women-owned businesses employ 27.5 million people and
contribute $3.6 trillion to the economy.

Bridging The Gap Between Government And Small Business
Your company is profiled onto the Federal Contracting Online’s website under your
product and service you provide, down to the niche or nature of your capabilities.
This is vital for proper procurement procedures.
Your product or service description is then translated into government codes for
procurement. All products and services have their own codes that officers
purchase under.
If your company has a website, you are encouraged to place this with your profile, as it
is a legal form of advertisement for government officials.
Marketing your business to the federal government is as important as your existing
marketing efforts in the commercial world. If you can determine that your business
is unique in some way-market it !
All government correspondence relating to contracting services are done daily Monday
- Friday. You are under no obligation to take a contract at any time. These are for your
review, meaning they will include the purchasing officers’ name, phone, fax and E-mail
so you may contact them directly with any further questions. They will include the
product/service they wish to obtain, as well as the dollar amount they are going to
spend with you.
Assistance in obtaining your C.A.G.E number. This is imperative in order to do business
with the Federal Government. It is an alpha numeric identifier assigned by the Defense
Logistics Center. It is also a good number to have because it allows all government
agencies to know that you are a registered vendor with the Federal Government.
Registrations for vendors provide government procurement and invoice payment data,
meaning they can pay the same day using the P-card, (same as a Visa or MasterCard
payment) or the electronic payment method on purchases from 25 thousand and under
per purchase. You do not have to wait 35-45 days to be paid. We understand small
businesses do not have the overhead or warehouse supply to wait on contract payment.
This method helps you receive payment the very same day, as well as a paperless
purchase for government agencies.
F.C.O. assists small business in completing the required registration process,
minimizing paperwork and increasing small business productivity time.

Machine Shops Forgotten?

There is much debate swarming in virtual every circle concerning the bailout of big auto.  Some feel its time for business attrition and natural selection to deem the big auto dinosaur no longer suitable for life in the business evolutionary life change. There is a reason for survival of the fittest – let nature take its course. It served its purpose.  Have we not evolved passed big union bosses, endless inefficiencies of middle management and a business model lost in port and perks?  Have we not learned a lesson from Bethlehem Steel?  The company imploded from within.  The world changed, they didn’t evolve - extinction was inevitable.

On the other hand, many feel that a government bailout is necessary for the good of the country.  Not just a hand out with no strings, but a bail out, complete with a swift kick in the corporate butt for their complete irresponsibility.  Believe it or not the government can help in ways that are responsible.  As long as this administration understands they can’t mandate day to day operations or have in had in the lasted contour aesthetics of a corvette, it can work.  The government can should provide accountability and set standards that will make them squeal.  When Kennedy challenged US industry to put a man and the moon by the end or the decade, it was deemed impossible by many at the time.  Necessity was the mother of invention.  His vision became reality. The auto industry finds itself in a similar situation and to succeed it will have to create more fuel efficient cars that are affordable.  The government must hold their feet to the fire and insist on these results.  Personally, I think this could be a great moment for big auto.  We all need to be humbled from time to time.

And for the sake of us all, I hope I’m right.  Hundreds of Tier 1 and Tier 2 supplies depend on an optimistic scenario.  Our machine shop isn’t heavily vested in the automotive industry, but many are.  We are often left out of the mix.  The news will speak of the 80,000 GM workers loosing their jobs, but neglect to mention the thousands of other jobs that will be lost if there is a collapse in big auto.  Jobs like mine and yours.

The Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) and the National Tooling & Machining Association (NTMA) have raised their voice on this issue.

“Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers need relief and a crucial element is for the government and courts to provide a ’safe passage’ mechanism for our tooling receivables through the Tier 1 suppliers during this bankruptcy,” said NTMA Chief Operating Officer Rob Akers. “Bankruptcy protection for GM must not be confined to guarantees for GM and its Tier 1 suppliers. The fate of tens of thousands of workers spread throughout the supply chain – and throughout thousands of communities across the United States – depends on fair treatment by GM, the U.S. government and bankruptcy courts.”

“Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers need relief and a crucial element is for the government and courts to provide a ’safe passage’ mechanism for our tooling receivables through the Tier 1 suppliers during this bankruptcy,” said NTMA Chief Operating Officer Rob Akers. “Bankruptcy protection for GM must not be confined to guarantees for GM and its Tier 1 suppliers. The fate of tens of thousands of workers spread throughout the supply chain – and throughout thousands of communities across the United States – depends on fair treatment by GM, the U.S. government and bankruptcy courts.”

“The federal government has spent hundreds of billions of dollars extending support to financial institutions, General Motors, Chrysler and large Tier 1 companies, but the benefits have yet to trickle down to the Tier 2 and Tier 3 supply chain companies,” said PMA President William Gaskin. “We are not asking for a bailout. We are only asking that the government and the courts ensure that GM and its Tier 1 suppliers pay the money that is owed to Tier 2 and 3 companies.

Machine shops and small size manufactures are vital links for the recovery plan of GM.  They cannot succeed without us.  “A recovery plan for GM is simply not viable unless the entire automotive supply chain not just the Big 3 and the Tier 1 supplier’s is taken into account.” said Gaskin.

I don’t think anyone in the precision machining industry is looking for a “hand out,” but a well planned and implemented “hand up” is not only appropriate but the right thing to do.  Don’t’ you think?
