WASHINGTON, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "Without a GSA Schedule contract, small businesses are at a disadvantage," states John West, Senior Advisor at Government Market Expert, a boutique GSA and Government Procurement Marketing firm. He adds, "we've been helping small businesses of every kind sell to the government for the past 16 years as the rush to government procurement expands."
Holding a GSA Schedule is the most direct way to lower barriers of entry into the federal marketplace. It provides vendors with the preferred tool that the government wants to use to make purchases. A General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule contract is a quick, efficient buying vehicle. Vendors who have done business with the government in the past are being urged by government buyers to "get on a Schedule" to continue to sell to the federal government.
Estimates show that the U.S. government spent over $40 billion in 2012 with companies that were directly contracted with the government through the GSA. With 23 percent of all government expenditures federally mandated to be made with small businesses, becoming a certified vendor for government buyers can prove extremely valuable in increased sales and revenue.
Mr. West asserts: "Our sole mission is to help small businesses get awarded government work."
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., Government Market Expert and John West understand the important role that small businesses play in the overall economy in creating jobs. They want to lend their expertise to assist with the GSA process and related marketing so that qualifying companies can participate in government contracting and benefit from government-mandated spending with small businesses.
