Summary

The United States federal government is the biggest customer in the world. It buys 20% of all the services and products produced in the U.S. But of the 22 million registered U.S. companies, fewer than 2% of them seek out this market. Why? Because small business owners don’t know where and how to get these contracts. Winning Government Contracts will change that. It begins at the beginning, assuming no prior knowledge of the government marketplace and its sometimes complicated terminology.Written in a clear, easy-to-understand language by experienced sales and marketing professionals, this book takes you through the registration and bidding process step-by-step. All the terms used in government contracts are explained in plain English. Winning Government Contracts shows you where to find the sales opportunities on the Internet, then guides you through every step in your quote, whether submitted electronically or on paper—explaining the jargon and outlining the exact information that needs to be entered. You will learn how to download drawings and specifications, understand shipping and packaging requirements, and find out how much the government is currently paying for an item before you submit an offer. The book also highlights areas where beginners need to be particularly careful, such as remembering to include shipping costs when you offer the government your best price! After the offer has been submitted, the book explains how to find the results of the bid—which company was awarded the contract and its price, as well as the names and prices of all the other bidders. Included is the government’s system of inspection, acceptance, invoicing, and payments, as well as the specific requirements for service contracts such as Statements of Work, Wage Determinations, and Technical Proposals. Whatever your business, the federal government is a marketplace you can enter. Winning Government Contracts will you show the way.

    The Tyranny of Merit: What's Become of the Common Good? by Michael J. Sandel: Conversation Starters
    
    The Tyranny of Merit is Sandel's latest work where he directs us to an unusual yet optimistic political perspective aimed to achieve more positive governance for the common good. Sandel aspires for a new political system geared towards a more hopeful society. He reveals that in moving forward and overcoming the barriers capsizing our times, we must modify our views on what it means to succeed and what failure entails. Sandel suggests a shift in our paradigms of thinking. In the conquest for a re-engineered politics and economy, he offers alternative actions with great emphasis on the virtue of humility, the function of luck, and the paramount importance of the dignity of work.
