The U.S. Small Business Administration requires that federal agencies set aside 23 percent of all federal contracts for small businesses. In 2010, the SBA hadn’t actually hit this goal, and recognizing that small businesses didn’t have the tools they needed to compete in the federal arena, Eric opened US Federal Contractor Registration to help small businesses succeed as government contractors. As the company’s client base grew, so did its office staff, which today includes nearly 50 federal contracting experts. And, most importantly, the SBA began to hit their small business contracting goals, as the number of small businesses with complete and accurate registrations grew. In 2016, the SBA reported that 25.75 percent of all federal contracts were awarded to small businesses.
Some of US Federal Contractor Registration’s clients include:
