New to the Federal Marketplace?

If you’re a small business who is new to government contracts and the government marketplace, with no past performance to speak of, you may find it more difficult to win contract awards. August 1, the FAR was amended to require contracting officials to enter past performance evaluations into a retrieval system that will be evaluated for subsequent procurements. Of course, if you have no past performance, you will be one of the “unknowns” in the procurement process. If you have current contracts, you’re still not out of the woods, however. These often subjective evaluations, regardless of contractor explanation, or even the evaluation being outright incorrect, will appear prior to final agency evaluation.
