Trying to crack the code for getting a foot in the door at Department of Justice or one of its components like ATF, FBI, DEA or Federal Prisons? The SAP Task Force suggests lowering your sights from the multi-million (or multi-billion) dollar programs and the high level of risk associated with the mega procurements and focus in on an area of government spending that's been on a steep upward trajectory for the last three fiscal years.
We're not suggesting you forget about the big ones, just take a logical step to finding and winning a piece of business that won't be two years in the making. We're talking about the Simplified Acquisition Procedures and the related Threshold that represented $16 billion in federal agency spending in FY2011 (up from $4 billion in FY2009).
Here are some facts for those looking at business opportunities at DOJ as part of your retirement plan.
Within the Procurement Services Staff at DOJ exists the Acquisition Programs Group (APG) who is responsible for managing and supporting the procurement operations of 130 Offices, Boards and Divisions within DOJ and is by chance is also responsible for over $200 million worth of simplified acquisition purchases each fiscal year.
For the record, DOJ has already spent $450 million via simplified acquisitions in FY2012 and they have done it using over 650 different NAICS Codes. The top five funding offices for DOJ account for more than $100 million in spending this year using the streamlined purchase method. More than $200 million of this year's total has been awarded to small business.
