Online PR News – 26-November-2010 – – TurboGSA launched a new GSA Schedule and Federal Marketing Blog that provides readers with original content containing practical tips to better manage your GSA contract and expand your federal business by providing real-world, practical advice. Recognizing that there are plenty of blogs available and that business owners, Federal sales people, and marketers already have more than enough to read, this blog does not inundate readers with a lot of rehashed stories.
Some recent articles include:
eBuy RFP’s – Should you Bid on Every Opportunity - After being awarded a GSA contract and uploading their pricelist to GSA Advantage, many GSA contractors are excited to access the myriad of RFP’s (Request for Proposal) posted in GSA’s eBuy system.
Finding Opportunities or Creating Opportunities: Which works Best - The vast majority of articles in magazines and on the web provide tips on how to set up your business to receive federal contracts and how to search for opportunities. Most provide advice about where to search agency web sites for procurement plans and forecasts, how to use FedBizOpps to locate current opportunities, or, if you are a GSA Contractor, using eBuy to find still more opportunities not available on FedBizOpps (see the eGuide link below for a guide containing this information). But in searching all of these databases, are you missing out on the greatest opportunity of all; the opportunity to create your own opportunities with Federal agencies?
Open Market Items under a GSA Contract order - New GSA Contractors often ask about selling items that are not listed in their GSA Schedule contract. Open market items may be sold to Agencies under a GSA Contract order, but you must clearly inform the customer that the items to be sold are indeed open market. This is an important concept to understand and new contractors often have problems with the GSA auditors if they do not manage this correctly.
