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.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
