After servicing the industry for almost 10 years now, USBRI has figured out the primary issues for new and existing SAM Registrants. Having a Multi-Year SAM Registration in place with an established credible long-term organization can make all the difference in the world. Some of the major problems we have found:
- Regulations & Procedures change almost daily in the Federal Procurement & Federal Financial Aid areas (including Set-Aside Certifications). Each year the process gets a bit more complicated with additional required information and/or documents.
- It is becoming even more imperative that ALL filings are filed with exactly the same updated information & updated codes (product & service codes change too). This is how 70% of the Federal Contracts below $150,000 are directly awarded to Certified Small Businesses without ever making to public bid.
- Companies & Organizations with a SAM Registration are repeatedly called & emailed by multiple unethical and fraudulent people and sometimes organizations. AND they are very very creative and quite successful. USBRI is the only organization in the industry where the phone will NOT be answered by a commissioned sales person, but a CRS (Certified Registration Specialist) who will ensure your needs are met and all services/updates/changes are completed as quickly as possible.
- Jobs/Grants even Contract Consideration is all lost due to inactive SAM Registrations or registrations with errors or a lack of their Small Business Certification.
