One of my go-to sources is the System for Award Management (SAM)
President of Government Business Solutions and American Express Advisor on Government Contracting
As a government contractor I am always looking for business tools that will connect me with procurement officials and new contracting opportunities. One of my go-to sources is the System for Award Management (SAM), the Dynamic Small Business Search (DSBS) database the government uses to find qualified small business contractors, and where larger contract-holders, or “primes,” seek qualified subcontracting partners. Using SAM has streamlined the contracting process, making business with the government more efficient and allowing me more time to invest in other areas of my company. I also rely on LinkedIn to help me explore new business prospects and network with others in my community. Resources like SAM and LinkedIn help relieve some of the pressure that comes with finding new opportunities and opens up time for me to focus on other business units.
