In the course of spending hundreds of billions of dollars each fiscal year, federal agencies leverage a number of procurement methods to purchase goods and services to support operational needs. One of the easiest and more efficient methods (by design) is known as the Simplified Acquisition Procedures or SAP.
The Simplified Acquisition Procedures are used by over sixty (60) federal agencies, boards and commissions, and represents one of the few areas of government spending realizing consistent increases. In fact, while the overall government spend has decreased by nearly $100 billion from FY2009 to FY2015, spending under Simplified Acquisitions has increased an average of one billion dollars each fiscal year during the same period.
Did we mention purchases under the Simplified Acquisition Threshold are reserved for small business concerns?
This interactive 2-hour presentation will provide attendees a solid background on:
- what Simplified Acquisitions are,
- how they are used by various federal agencies,
- how much agencies spend under this purchase method,
- what goods and services are procured,
- award types used,
- how to find contacts and opportunities related to Simplified Acquisitions using FPDS-NG and FBO.gov,
- and much more!
"Based on my participation in ‘The Complete Simplified Acquisitions Workshop!’ and the advice shared during the program, I registered as a Simplified Purchase Agreement (SPA) contractor on GPO.gov and within the last couple of days I’ve been awarded 3 purchase orders. My major objective at this stage was to see how the system works and see if it makes sense for Signsations. Short answer it definitely does.
The quote is submitted on one day, the award is made the next day and the product ships within a week or two. That’s just the kind of business I’m looking for. Thanks so much for steering me in this direction!"
