The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plans to hire government contractors to execute continuous cyber security services to the largest federal civilian agencies, including itself. The DHS will supervise the overall process from procurement to operations, making sure an extensive sweep is conducted to discover any cyber risks in their network. The DHS has predicted that this cyber security government contract will take around five years to be completed and the award will be around $6 billion in total. Eric Knellinger, President of US Federal Contractor Registration, is encouraging small businesses that have experience in IT and technical security systems to keep a watchful eye out on FBO.gov for these cyber security contracts issued by the DHS. US Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR) is the world’s largest third party registration firm that properly registers businesses in System for Award Management (SAM) to become eligible for government contracts and start bidding on available solicitations. USFCR provides live professional assistance to all businesses looking to become registered in SAM or that need help networking to federal buyers.

The cyber security services will include continuous scans across agency networks to make sure all areas have been assessed and analyzed. John Streufert, Director of the National Cyber Security Division at the DHS, commented, “Our attention here needs to be on how to organize ourselves in such a way that we can respond rapidly and comprehensively, and I think that the reaction of the departments and agencies is measured by the numbers who are ready to do business at this moment, a period before the award has even occurred.” Just as Mr. Streufert stated, this is why it is so very important for businesses to become registered properly in order to aid the DHS in their cyber security contract. Contractors will help improve several government agencies’ data networks to protect against possible cyber threats. If a business is not properly registered in SAM, opportunities such as this DHS contract will not be available to them.    

In order to bid on and work government contracts, businesses must obtain a DUNS number and complete their System for Award Management (SAM) registration. Successful contractors also develop aggressive government marketing plans, which include the creation of a profile on government websites such as the SBA’s Dynamic Small Business Search and automated bid notifications to their email from FBO.gov.

To help small businesses avoid costly errors, US Federal Contractor Registration is offering an evaluation and review of a vendor’s government registration. During the evaluation, a Placement Specialist will review the company’s government contractor registration to ensure it is complete, contains the correct information, and is optimized to help them win government contracts. Placement Specialists can also prepare a government contracting profitability assessment to help business owners review government spending trends within their industry and identify current contracting opportunities.
