Melissa Baum, a case manager with US Federal Contractor Registration since April 2015, works closely with our clients, making sure their registrations are current, correct, and updated. Contractors with registrations that are not current, correct, and updated risk missing out on payments for contracts and grants, “because there is a lot of information and questions in the DFAR and FAR clauses that have to be answered correctly, and a lot of people don’t know where to start with the process and can get very frustrated because there is no assistance from the government in terms of registering in the System for Award Management.”
Her advice for new contractors or even contractors who are looking to grow their government business? Use the tools and guidance available to you, such as from your case manager and acquisition specialist, to make sure you know when opportunities are available, how to correctly bid, and how to make sure contracting officers know about you and your business.
Melissa received her Associate’s Degree in Paralegal Studies in December 2013 from Harrison College in Indiana.
“I am always available to my clients and follow-up with them to make sure their questions are answered quickly and efficiently,” Melissa says. “I enjoy helping others and use my legal experience to make sure all legal information is provided and answered correctly.”
I am writing this review in to show how efficient Melissa Baum of USFCR was in supporting Imaginetics LLC north to get signed back up with our SAM registration. She was a very professional individual to work and was able to answer all of my questions off of the top of her head, She stayed on task and once our registration was submitted it was hours, not days before she informed me that our company was complete and registered for another year. Surveys and registration can be very painful and time consuming and working with Melissa was just the opposite. I believe if other companies exerted the effort shown by Melissa surveys and registrations would be looked upon in a entirely new light.
