Can I Sell to the Government?


The Government spends more than $600 billion annually on contracts for goods and services.

The Government is looking for both large and small businesses that can provide quality goods and services, on time, and at a fair and reasonable price.

Businesses can enter the Government market as a prime contractor, subcontractor, or both. Both the Government and prime contractors want to buy from established businesses with an established sales history, good past performance, and relevant past experience.

Businesses should have adequate capacity and capability to perform – including equipment, facilities, labor and financing. Businesses should also be internet capable, current and secure, have a record of personal and business integrity and ethics, and possess needed technical credentials.

Small businesses, if eligible, should consider application for appropriate certifications. (See section on Small Business Programs – Certifications.)
