US Federal Contractor Registration Acquisition Specialist Huff Bhatia was featured in an Equipment World. The online magazine, in an article about how contractors can get disaster clean-up work in areas ravaged by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma (the article was published prior to Hurricane Maria making landfall in Puerto Rico).
The article says, in part:
Instead of going through the SAM registry process on your own, another route is to use the services of a fee-based “professional registry service.” FEMA states: “There are companies that replicate services of the Federal Government entities and there are typically fees associated with their services. Most Federal Government services, if not all, are free of charge. Always make it a practice to reach out to the appropriate Federal agency first to inquire about the validity of the service, specifically if a fee is associated with it.”
To anyone who’s dealt with federal paperwork hoops, however, the sales pitch on these registry services can be compelling, especially in a time-sensitive environment such as disaster relief. One such service is the U.S. Federal Contractor Registration Service (USFCR). “Instead a process that can take four to eight weeks, we gather all your information, and can get your SAM registration done in 10 to 12 days,” says Huff Bhatia, acquisition specialist with USFCR. The cost is $599 a year.
“It’s only a 15- to 20-minute process to fill everything out,” Bhatia says. “We know what information is needed to put your best foot forward,” such as making sure your company is identified with the right NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) code.
And since the cost is on a per-year basis, Bhatia says his firm makes sure contractors keep their registrations current, a yearly task that can slip by busy contractors. “That way, they’re always in compliance.”
Bhatia has more than than 30 years of sales experience, aims each day to make sure his clients have the resources and information they need to win government contracts -- be that marketing programs,  set-aside certifications, and/or access to  solicitations. He recommends all businesses interested in government contracting make sure their information is current and valid, because failing to do that means a procurement officer or government buyer can’t even consider you for the contract.
