In this webinar, you’ll explore some of the easiest ways to win your first Federal contract or your next one!
You know the feeling when everyone around you is talking about winning “simplified acquisitions,” and you have no idea where they find these opportunities. But not anymore.
Join us and learn how to find “bite-sized” opportunities and why these small contracts are much more powerful and important than they appear. You’ll come away with the ability to recognize these opportunities and the next steps to take when you find them. Each step includes critical concepts that successful companies master as they launch and grow their government contract business.
There’s plenty more you’ll need to learn, but this session will give you an understanding of how to see opportunities your competitors might have missed. You’ll be able to make it easier for Federal buyers to award work to you, AND at significantly lower proposal costs than the giant RFPS require.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
- What is Simplified Acquisition (SAP)?
- Where are the details?
- Why is it important?
- When do buyers use SAP?
- How much is spent under SAP?
- What’s set aside for small businesses?
- What do buyers procure using SAP?

- Resources and next steps
