I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to dive right back into it, because we've got good stuff to get you started.

If your company is:puzzle

A) trying to get its first piece of business with a federal agency

B) trying to get your next piece of business with a federal agency

C) just curious about how federal agencies spend $16 billion dollars in a fiscal yearnot on the GSA Schedule

You should check out this weeks Simplified Acquisition Snapshot article, or register for today's Simplified Acquisition Spotlight webinar featuring Department of Justice.

This week's Snapshot article highlights federal streamlined purchases where Maryland is the place of performance. Want to venture a guess how much has been spent in FY12 so far or how much has gone to small businesses? You won't have to guess because we tell you right in this week's article where you will also learn about more than $6 million in these purchases that were paid via GSA SmartPay/SmartPay2 Purchase Card. Talk about no waiting time.

If you take a minute to read the article and answer either (or both) of the trivia questions, you can earn your self free passes to our Spotlight webinar program that today will focus on DOJ and the more than $450 million dollars spent so far in FY12. We'll tell you about the bureaus that lead in spending, what they are buying and how to get in on the action.

You should be awake now!

Simplified Acquisitions - The Streamlined Purchase Process
The SAP Task Force presents substantive information on how, what and where government agencies make purchases using the Simplified Acquisition Procedures (SAP) - one of the easiest methods for acquiring goods and services to support government business and mission operations. In addition to Simplified Acquisitions: A Missed Opportunity for Small Government Contractors offered in-person and via webinar under The ASBCs of Government Contracting, you can now participate in an agency-by-agency, market research-centric deep dive during the Simplified Acquisition Spotlight. This program offers a tactical view of business activities and opportunities at a specific agency. We're online the second and fourth Monday of each month.

The newest contribution to your business development efforts is the Simplified Acquisition Snapshot, a complimentary, weekly blog entry that reviews federal agency SAP spending state-by-state that highlights top agencies/sub-agencies, what's being purchased and a little trivia you can answer to win free passes to the Spotlight webinars.
