Finding and Winning Simplified Acquisitions to Grow Your Business!
In the course of spending hundreds of billions of dollars each fiscal year, federal agencies leverage a number of procurement methods to purchase goods and services to support operational needs. One of the easiest and more efficient methods (by design) is known as the Simplified Acquisition Procedures or SAP.
The Simplified Acquisition Procedures are used by over sixty (60) federal agencies, boards and commissions, and represents one of the few areas of government spending realizing consistent increases. In fact, while the overall government spend has decreased by nearly $100 billion from FY2009 to FY2015, spending under Simplified Acquisitions has increased an average of one billion dollars each fiscal year during the same period.

This two-part session will be hosted on May 25, 2016 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis from 10:15AM to 12:30PM and will be facilitated by Guy Timberlake of The American Small Business Coalition, who leveraged Simplified Acquisitions in the early in his career to capture his first million dollar contract with the Navy in support of pilot training systems. Most recently Guy advised a member company and their government client in leveraging Simplified Acquisitions that resulted in the issuance of a sole source Simplified Acquisition purchase valued at $2.5M at the end of fiscal year 2014.
