Could Details Be Costing You Millions?
TargetGov Blog
By: Ben Souder

A recent report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) highlights a case that is very important to keep in mind when dedicating time and resources to proposals. It is important to comply with the specifications when delivering proposals, as the companies who protested this decision can now attest to. They lost a contract worth millions of dollars because they didn’t comply with the specified page limitations and the GAO’s ultimate decision was, “we deny the protests.”

So what happened? - Read the rest here.

July 1 Begins Final Quarter of the Federal Fiscal Year
Strategize & Execute Now to Increase Sales

By: Gloria Larkin
WIPP's myContracting Magazine

The federal government agencies follow a fiscal year beginning October1 and ending September 30. We have just entered the final quarter starting July 1. Historically, over $150 billion will be spent in the next three months with companies both large and small receiving competitive and single source contracts.

Whatever monies federal agencies and military operations have not yet spent will go to the vendors who have built a proactive strategy targeting and building relationships with decision-makers.
