As Agent 86 Would Say, “Would You Believe…?”

HCB Guy on Mic2Myths and downright inaccurate information plague federal contracting and do nothing more than create grief for many businesses seeking growth, and ill-gotten profits for shysters and opportunists who inhabit the seedy underbelly of our industry.

Be warned, those making the most noise and offering shiny rocks rarely if ever have your best interests in mind.

– Guy Timberlake, The Chief Visionary

I like to believe I’ve become more adept at substantiating assertions and beliefs over the years. Mine and those of others. It’s something I wish I had picked up in the eighties or nineties as it would have save me (and the companies I worked for and led) time and money associated with chasing myths. As a resource to many individuals and companies pursuing business opportunities with civilian, defense and intelligence agencies, I’m very careful about information I dispense and do my best to vet information developed on my own or received through other channels.

With that said, I offer the following information for your consumption, and in tribute to one of my all-time favorite secret agents, Maxwell Smart, Agent 86.

– Blanket Purchase Agreement

– Federal Supply Schedule

– Government Wide Acquisition Contract

– Indefinite Delivery Contract

or the delivery and task orders associated with these established contract vehicles? 32323643_l slice of american dollar pie

To sweeten it just a bit more, the small federal contractors on the winning end carved out a piece of government contracting pie worth $10 billion.
