SAGE Membership

Monthly Dues:
$85 for Individuals

The Simplified Acquisitions Growth Engine for Government Contractors membership is a continuous learning, group-based, business acceleration program. It's focused on providing participants the knowledge, skills, confidence and advisory support to understand, identify, pursue and win federal agency purchases made when FAR Part 13, the Simplified Acquisition Procedures are leveraged. 

The membership welcomes new members during a series of open enrollments occurring up to 4 times annually, each enrollment period signalling the kickoff of the next round of EDUCATE and EXECUTE activities that result in new members joining the SAGE COHORT.

  • PART ONE: SAGE™ EDUCATE* - is a multi-week self-paced and facilitated virtual education and training program that immerses participants in all things 'Simplified Acquisitions' (it's pretty FASA-nating!). It's also a dive into essentials of federal procurement classifications and terminology to include their meanings and usage and brings it all together with customized training to help neophytes and industry veterans develop and use relevant and timely market and competitive intelligence taken from the pages of Ethical Stalking for Government Contractors.
    Duration: 5 Weeks

  • PART TWO: SAGE™ EXECUTE* - picks up where the lecture-based immersion, EDUCATE, ends by taking participants to get their hands dirty, in a manner of speaking. Everything learned in EDUCATE is put to use in EXECUTE, based on their unique goals and objectives.  The goal of EXECUTE is guiding each participant to the development of a strategy framework they will employ to find and win future streamlined opportunities.
    4 Weeks

  • PART THREE: SAGE™ COHORT - takes participants with newly acquired (or refreshed) knowledge into the field of play, with our help. In the COHORT, participants will engage in ongoing learning facilitated by the SAGE team and other members of the Cohort. Recurring virtual roundtables, discussion forums, presentations by SAGE team members and other thought-leaders from Government and Industry, the SAGE Spotlight (market and competitive intelligence generated by the SAGE team) and more.
    Duration: Indefinite

SAGE is a premium program of the Education and Training membership which means SAGE EXECUTE, EDUCATE and COHORT activities and benefits are in addition to those benefits.

*The EDUCATE and EXECUTE education and training requires 2.0 - 2.5 hours of participation per week. This includes a 30-60 minute weekly webinar with the course instructor, self-paced and facilitated activities relevant to the course objectives.
