Government Contracting and CAO

The CAO (Chief Acquisition Officer) is a Senior Agency Official in the GSA, along with the SPE, and they are the leaders at the top responsible for leading all of the others involved with the GSA to encourage vendor engagement. Change must start at the top!


Government Contracting and SPE

It is the Senior Procurement Executive’s (SPE) job to “tone at the top” and be sure to lead in the GSA’s mission to take down the walls and be completely transparent, pleasing and engaging companies, while the acquisition progression is underway.

Government Contracting and Innovation

Did you know that the GSA has an advantage over other government agencies? It has the ability, along with the “authority” to do testing of sorts, or at least that is how I see it, to better their operations. My opinion is that would be something all companies should be able to take advantage of in order to make their companies run more efficiently.


Government Contracting and Networking

Along with keeping open communications with the GSA’S vendor community of new businesses, they are also committed to keep open communication with those business that have not been recently working, so as to keep a good foundation of new and old vendors at the bottom as a strong basis to build upon.


Government Contracting and Small Business Communications

Considering the GSA’s number one commitment is to communicate with its vendor, it is important to note that this communication includes both small business and their subgroups as well.


Government Contracting and NAICS

A NAICS, North American Industry Classification System, is able to allow for you to differentiate between a small business and a not so small business.


Government Contracting and Advanced Search

In order to find small businesses registered with SAM you must perform an Advanced Search and look for their NAICS code.
