Beware of companies charging for system for award management registration

Registering in the System for Award Management is the first step in doing business with the federal government. Registration is completed at the official SAM website, https://www.sam.gov/, and is free of charge.

Some websites are offering to register companies in SAM for a substantial fee. These commercial websites are appearing above the official SAM website in such Google searches as "government contractor registration" and their designs appear to mimic official government websites.

The official SAM website contains an extensive help section for registering your company. If you have any additional questions, please call Roy Rossignol, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District Small Business Office Chief, at 615-736-7569. The Department of the Army Small Business Programs can also be contacted for information by clicking here.

Customer Services

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District Small Business Office is a valuable resource for small businesses that seek defense contracting and subcontracting opportunities.  Contact Us at 615-736-7569 for more information on how the Nashville District can assist and provide more information on the federal government's procurement system. 

 

 

 

Best Practices

Monitor procurement advertisements daily

Nashville District uses formal solicitation procedures and publishes notices for major program actions. We utilize best value, invitation for bids (sealed bid process), and negotiated procedures. 

All Federal Agencies are required to use Federal Business Opportunities to provide public notice for solicitations estimated greater than $25,000. The Nashville District occasionally posts public notices on this website for any soliciations less than $25,000.

The Army Single Face to Industry (ASFI) site provides vendors with a single point of entry to search for, view and respond to Army solicitations. AFSI provides a seamless, paperless web environment tying vendors to Army buyers.

Stay Alert

Always respond to announcements for “Sources Sought” on the FedBizOpps website that match your firm’s capabilities. Contracting Officers use this “Sources Sought” process to confirm market research in determining whether or not to set aside a requirement for small businesses.

Make it a point to attend business networking opportunities, conferences, trade fairs, and other federally supported liaison meetings in your local area. The Corps of Engineers is normally represented at such meetings and events. These meeting venues provide an excellent opportunity to meet on a one-on-one basis with small business and procurement specialists and program managers who can assist small businesses with finding information about upcoming government contracts and requirements.

Seek Opportunities as a Subcontractor

Many of DoD’s requirements are beyond the scope of a single small business. We encourage businesses to investigate potential subcontracting opportunities with DoD Prime Contractors. Check out the U.S. Department of Defense Office of Small Business Programs and U.S. Small Business Administration websites.
