When a business starts winning government contracts, they may experience some cash flow changes because the government pays a little different than your average client. This is something that you have to consider when submitting your offers. On this episode of "The Government Buys...a Podcast," we're going to uncover some of those challenges. We'll look at some early wins for a successful small business government contractor to understand what went right and what went wrong.
Recently Todd Marchant Construction Co. dba RockNErosion won its first two federal contracts. Although it takes an average of 12-18 months for businesses to win their first award, RockNErosion completed this feat in just half of the time. For Todd Marchant however, searching, bidding, and performing federal contracts isn’t just something that he does for an income. Todd has found genuine enjoyment and passion in this type of work.
In federal contracting, having a great past performance record can open up a wide range of opportunities down the road. After all, the U.S. federal government wants to build relationships with quality businesses that they can rely on. Although Metropolitan Logistics, LLC dba Metro Managed Services has recently won its first two contracts, they are no strangers to working with Uncle Sam. Their repeated success in federal contracting demonstrates how a business can scale this sector by establishing a solid reputation.
It’s no secret that a lot of America’s manufacturing has gone overseas. This couldn’t be more exemplified than with the textile industry’s move toward countries such as China, Vietnam, Malaysia, and India. This massive shift has left many factories across the U.S. closed. Pacific Continental Textiles, Inc. isn’t one of them. In fact, they’ve been manufacturing apparel and textiles for the commercial sector for 37 years. Now, with a recent contract from the Defense Logistics Agency, they’ve just added the federal government as their newest customer.
In the federal marketplace, there are loads of opportunities across every industry imaginable. You don’t know what you’ll just find or what you will even be working on. That’s because there are plenty of businesses who will jump on opportunities that are outside of their own industries. From an outside perspective, this may sound impractical or even impossible, but it’s more common than one would think. One recent example of a business finding success in the federal marketplace by reaching out of their normal spectrum of work is Near Me, L.L.C.
Federal contracting is a long term investment for any business to take on. It can also be quite difficult to get your foot in the door as well. On average, it will take a business registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) anywhere between 12 and 18 months to win their first federal contract. Los Angeles-based business, CreativIT Consulting, LLC dba Cloud 9 Solutions, achieved this milestone within an even shorter span of time and won two federal contracts. What makes this achievement even more astounding? The business only consists of just one person.
Federal contracting is a highly competitive sector. Getting your foot in the door is a whole feat of its own. However, a true indicator of a contractor’s prowess and quality of work is when Uncle Sam chooses to build a working relationship with their business. Such is the case with RTG Building Services Inc. (which has held previous contracts under LP Custodial) winning their rebid on a janitorial contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. After a 10 year contract, the Army has once again solidified their trust in RTG Building Services Inc. with this recent award.

Then, in the West, there have been numerous wildfires with the Camp Fire being one of the most destructive in recent memory.

With a recent Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) award from the U.S. Forest Service, B&G Forestry, LLC will be there to answer the call and provide aid.
