Part II: Simplified Acquisition Awards

  • Verify that the bureau with whom you wish to do business actually buys the goods or services your company can provide by reviewing the Top 25 Listing.
  • Locate the buying offices that purchase your product or service by reviewing Treasury’s Forecast of Contract Opportunities and contacting the appropriate Small Business Specialist. Also request the names of contacts within the procurement office who can provide further assistance or contact Treasury’s Bureau Simplified Acquisition Contacts.
  • Visit Treasury's Small Business Specialists at our Monthly Vendor Outreach Sessions. Find out how often your products or services are purchased; how offices maintain their source lists; how often the list is rotated; and how the Treasury bureaus do business.
  • Enter your company information and provide a profile in the System for Award Management (SAM) system. When entering information under business size, be sure to indicate small business as well as your other socioeconomic categories that are applicable to your company. When you indicate small business, you will also be included in SBA's ProNet database which has now merged with SAM. At the end of the SAM registration, you will be asked to submit keywords and a capability narrative to be added to your company information for ProNet. From this list, your company may be notified about potential contract opportunities. The database is a powerful marketing tool for small businesses; however, registering on the database does not guarantee that you will receive a federal contract.
  • Submit capability statements to simplified acquisition procurement offices and to the bureau Small Business Specialist to inform them of your company's capabilities. Your statement should include specific information on the type of products or services your company provides, a listing of your North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) codes, and references of previous customers. To assist you in identifying your NAICS codes, you may examine a list of NAICS codes online.
