APAC Client Connection

May 2017
While there are many government contracting opportunities out there that you may be aware of, Challege.gov presents another way to become active in solving mission focused problems facing today's U.S. government.  Members of the public have the opportunity to search through hundreds of open competitions at www.challenge.gov
Let APAC assist you in determining if your company is eligible for small business set aside certification areas. This could make your company more attractive to the federal government and give you the ability to seek government contracts in the set aside areas.

This month's Highlight comes from Saline County - Global Executive Services

After receiving bid information and assistance from APAC, Global Services was awarded a nearly $50,000 government contract for cleaning commercial business offices in his area.  
Now that we have a federal budget approved for the remainder of fiscal year 2017, things could get more interesting this summer for those of you who are looking for government contracts.
