Helping Clients Make Money With Uncle Sam

Last year the federal government spent $260 billion on outsourced services. Accounting and consulting firms have plenty of opportunities to get a piece of the pie. And clients of your firm have incredible opportunities as well.

But how do you find out about opportunities to sell to the federal government?

A new free alert service, BidRadar.com, will send you an email alert each day of all of the active RFPs in any of over 100 categories that you can select.

Subscribe to the free BidRadar service and bring value to your client relationships by alerting them to business opportunities while they still have a chance to win the engagements.

Don't have clients that make nuclear submarines? Don't worry. The Federal Government awarded over $40 billion in contracts to small businesses last year. Additionally, the Small Business Administration has a mandate to ensure that a percentage of Uncle Sam's spending goes to small businesses.

So don't overlook this treasure-trove of an opportunity. You will be amazed at the breadth and depth of the proposals that the federal government sends out for bid. Chances are that your firm or your clients' businesses have many opportunities to secure some of the $260 billion that the federal government is looking to spend.
