How to Be Attractive to Large Prime Contractors


It's Bidding Season!

The federal government spends billions of dollars each year on contracts for products and services. A majority of the dollars awarded goes to prime contractors. Each of these contracts require a commitment to partner with small businesses, providing a great opportunity for those well prepared. They need to demonstrate that they’re the right partner ready to contribute to winning and performing on contracts.
We’ve identified four key strategies to position a company to be an attractive partner:
  • First, and most importantly, they want partners to offer differentiators that help contribute to their winning potential.
  • Next, you have to eliminate compliance risks, avoiding becoming their weakest link in the supply chain.
  • You also have to demonstrate that you understand and are controlling your costs, keeping your indirect rates low to contribute to competitive pricing.
  • And finally, you should integrate the best outside professional services resources cost effectively.
Our OneLynk business platform can help you deliver on each of these points.
