The economy may not be doing all that well these days, and jobs are hard to find. However, the government is still taking contract bids. Maybe you have a talent or product to offer the government that someone else cannot. Many businesses and individuals seek out government contracts because they can be short term or long term. Either way, the contractor knows the job is there for the length of the contract and they will be paid for their products and/or services. Government Bids are used to acquire such government contracts.
The need for experienced and creative “green” engineers is growing and many are already submitting bids to the government for their product or service. This venue can include individuals or vendors. How you can get one of these lucrative government contracts is what you need to know.
The most competitive but also the most needed areas for government contracts is usually in maintenance or recovery because the structures and military equipment requires constant maintenance and repair. There are many other areas for government contracts like IT, engineering (this one is big as well), “green” projects and multiple other projects that the government contracts out to vendors and individuals.
Bidding on a government contract with the wrong size or measurement will assure your rejection. Government Bids are setup to be exact, so when you bid on a contract you need to have the correct information and provide accurate measurements when this is required for a contract.
Even though you may be a great writer and business person, do not try to impress the government with your fantastic marketing skills by using words that usually impress others. That is a nice trait to have, but it has to be put on the back burner if you are going to submit a bid to the government. This falls in line with keeping it simple.
Just like the average American, the government relies on using their plastic. Do not bid on a government contract that you are not sure you can deliver on due to lack of the proper resources or skills because that is just defeating your purpose. Make sure to dot your I’s and cross your t’s before you even begin to think about submitting a bid for a government contract.
