About Simplified Acquisition Spotlight
Share |

Simplified Acquisition Spotlight is an interactive web-based opportunity to learn about current streamlined purchasing at federal agencies and sub-agencies to include what’s being purchased, by whom and where the work is being done.  

Why Simplified Acquisitions?

While "low hanging fruit" is one of the myths of federal contracting, Simplified Acquisitions are a type of federal purchasing that is frequently overlooked, often misunderstood, yet these purchases account for billions in agency spending for goods and services each year.

The Simplified Acquisition Procedures (SAP) were created to reduce the administrative burden for Government and Industry, and to create additional government contracting opportunities for small business concerns. While the process for issuing and awarding these requirements is streamlined, finding and winning these opportunities still requires due diligence to understand who is spending money and what they are buying.

Personally, we think it’s worth the effort since federal agencies spent a whopping $16 billion dollars on goods and services in FY11. This was a four billion dollar increase over FY10 spending and more than $12 billion dollars greater than FY09 spending.
