“Even in a sluggish economy, government agencies still need the supplies and services that keep them going. Government purchasing officials plan to maintain or increase government spending levels in the year ahead”--Scott Orbach, President – EZGSA
As the economy slows down and a recession is on everyone’s mind, many businesses are having difficulties selling their products to commercial enterprises. There are many steps to be taken to protect your business from the difficult time ahead, but when the time comes to recession-proof your business, selling to the federal government can be a big step in the right direction.
Of the $787 billion in stimulus money created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, $30 billion was spent on government contracts during the first quarter of 2010 alone. With the stimulus package predicted to create a 166% growth in federal spending levels for the 2010 fiscal year, there has never been a more opportune time for businesses to enter the federal marketplace.
Additionally, more and more procurement officials are utilizing the GSA Schedule, which allows the government to purchase the products and services produced by private companies, such as yours, effectively and efficiently.
If you are interested in finding out how a GSA Schedule can be an asset to your business, EZGSA will help simplify the government sales process. EZGSA’s experts deliver the information you need – in an informative, jargon-free manner!

However, winning a Schedule award can be a complex, time consuming and costly process and it simply isn’t the right fit for every business. This seminar offers a comprehensive overview of the agency, the schedules and the award process. It focuses on specific information useful for determining if a GSA Schedule is the right decision for your company, and if it is, for obtaining an award more quickly.
