You are invited to immediately contact us for your initial, no-charge consultation.

We manage all phases of the government procurement process - including pricing and preparation of offers and bids, negotiations, pre-award surveys and other capability reviews, awards, contract administration, modifications, disputes and terminations. We perform any or all of these functions for federal subcontracts and private-sector (commercial) contracts as well.

We'll explain the solicitation's or contract's complicated and confusing list of "Terms and Conditions," specifications, clauses and obscure references. With extensive previous experience reviewing, analyzing and interpreting thousands of documents and contracts issued by hundreds of different federal procurement offices, we indeed know them well.

We've dealt with top-level management and the primary contract decision-makers at the following federal agencies.   We'll accompany, assist or represent your firm at ANY of them:

  • Department of Defense (DOD) - including all DLA agencies and supply centers such as DLA Troop Support Philadelphia (formerly known as the Defense Supply Center Philadelphia, or "DSCP") and DLA - Warren (formerly known as U.S Army - TACOM)
  • Department of the Army
  • Department of the Air Force
  • Department of the Navy
  • Marine Corps - including the Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC)
  • U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
  • U.S. Department of Commerce
  • U.S Postal Service (USPS)
  • U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
  • National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
  • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
  • Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
  • U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)
  • U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)
  • U.S. Department of Labor (DOL)
  • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
  • U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA)

  • General Services Administration (GSA) - all offices, including the Federal Supply Service (FSS) and the Federal Technology Service (FTS)

We have extensive experience with various U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) programs and are especially equipped to assist small businesses with them.   These programs typically include:

  • The Size Determination Program - assessing and defending a firm's eligibility for a contract and/or SBA assistance when its size status has been protested, or submitting a size protest on behalf of a firm to protect its interests and preserve its priority rights to a contract.
  • The Certificate of Competency ("COC") Program - evaluating and determining the competence ("responsibility") of firms to undertake a particular federal contract.
  • The Subcontracting Program - matching small business firms with large business prime contractors.
  • The Set-Aside Program - procurements which are in part or entirely restricted to offers only from small business firms or small disadvantaged business firms.
  • The HUBZone Program - and other socio-economic programs designed to foster growth and development of small businesses.
  • NAICS Codes - interpretation and/or appropriate designation.

We're experienced in evaluating manufacturing procedures, equipment, facilities and labor resources necessary for the production of a wide variety of both complex military and standard commercial items. We'll interpret the contract's technical, production, inspection and quality assurance requirements and discuss each of them with your staff as necessary. We'll identify the potential contract risks and explain how to best reduce or eliminate them.

We'll prepare, direct and assist your firm for an impending pre-award survey or Certificate of Competency (COC) review

regardless of the technical or procedural complexities involved.

We have performed and/or managed over a thousand such reviews for firms in substantially every manufacturing or service industry.

We analyze and evaluate your resources and capabilities before

the official survey or review begins. We identify all potentially disqualifying deficiencies and establish a plan to facilitate their correction. We can predict, with a high level of probability, a firm’s chances of successfully passing the required pre-award survey or Certificate of Competency review. Then we prepare the firm's formal oral and written presentations to provide an optimum chance for winning final contract approval by the government.

From the post-award side, we know the mindset of the government's contract administration team and its major decision-makers, as well as their own critical needs and requirements. We know how to protect your anticipated profits while handling the typically confusing bureaucratic maze of post-award change orders, negotiations, contract modifications and documentation.

We're familiar with all types of price and cost analyses and associated audits - and we'll help your firm undertake and pass them.

We'll help you with substantially every potential contract type, including firm, fixed-price contracts, requirements contracts (typically identified as "ID/IQ") and "cost-plus" contracts.

Our extensive experience includes service as a lecturer, seminar leader and workshop facilitator at countless federal contracting symposiums and business opportunity fairs.

We'll counsel and assist you with ANY combination or ALL of these government acquisition processes. You can use our expertise not only for a particular bid or contract, but for your other presently-booked and future anticipated work as well.

Be prepared.  Be ready.  Contact us now for your initial, no-charge consultation.
