It is a requirement of the Federal Government that all services and products procurements estimated to cost $25K or more must be published and provided to the public. FedBizOpps is the single Federal Government point-of-entry for announcements of these procurements. Federal government buyers are able to publicize their business opportunities by posting information directly to FedBizOpps via the Internet. Through this one portal, commercial vendors seeking Federal markets for their products and services can search, monitor and retrieve opportunities solicited by the entire Federal contracting community.
Because the FedBizOpps site is vast and complex, SGBC Group offers its customers the service of daily searches specific to your capabilities to locate Requests For Proposals (RFPs), Requests For Information (RFIs), Request For Quotes (RFQs), Pre-Solicitations, and Sources Sought Notices. We ensure that no interest is overlooked that would result in a missed opportunity
Sometimes doing business with the Federal Government requires more than one contractor’s expertise to fulfill the procurement needs. This requires companies to join forces in order to compete for the work.
The relationship(s) can either be a partnering arrangement by which two or more companies come together to work on a specific type of work as a unit on all Federal Government procurements or they can team together on a specific procurement only.
Either way, these relationships must be brought together and bound by a legal agreement. The most common agreements used in performance of Federal Government contracts are listed below. Our team of experts has developed templates for each document that they can easily tailor for clients needs.
• Teaming Agreement • Partnering Agreement • Letter of Intent • Non-Disclosure Agreement

A bid protest is a written objection filed by an interested party, defined as someone whose interests are being or about to be harmed by a procurement procedure or award of an agency of the Federal Government. These protests can either be pre-award or post-award.
Unfortunately, there may be the time where a contractor believes that their bid for a Federal Contract has been, or is about to be, unfairly denied. Our team of experts is experienced in the Bid Protest Process and can properly analyze the situation to provide appropriate guidance. A contractor must know his rights under the Bid Protest as well as the process to file. The Federal Government does not take the Bid Protest lightly and if you plan to go this route, it is best to have experienced representation to layout your basis of protest and assist in filing it with the Federal government.
