Winning your first government contract can be slow moving – sometimes taking upwards of several years to gain traction. It’s an up (Capitol) Hill battle.
With limited resources and budgets, maintaining a contract on your own can be a drag. That’s why IT solution providers are on the hunt for trusted partners to gain access to public sector work – while avoiding the costs and time associated with government contracts.
Take it Easy
To ease the headache, IT solutions providers are looking to General Services Administration (GSA) contract holders to turn the sometimes yearlong process from a nightmare to a walk in the park. GSA contracts are becoming the preferred purchasing mechanism within government contracting offices. A report from Deltek found that SLED purchasing of IT goods and services via GSA Schedule IT70 is expected to grow from $772 million to over $950 million between 2015 and 2020. With this leap in spending, it’s increasingly important for IT solution providers to get their heads in the game and get on a GSA Schedule.
It’s not rocket science – acquiring a GSA contract is critical to IT solution providers’ success. Without it, it’s hard to get a word in edgewise. Not only does a GSA contract help reduce the red tape associated with government purchases and get you inside agency doors faster, pricing is pre-negotiated for simpler cost management. Sounds like a win-win to me.
