|Registering for Prevailing Wage Jobs|
Competition for public works jobs has become fierce in recent years, and the work promised by the economic stimulus plan has only encouraged more contractors to consider this market. Recently, one of our clients in the Northeast told us that while he used to see only three or four other bids on jobs he was competing for, at a recent bid opening there were 22 competitors.
To bid on federally-funded jobs, you first need to register with the Central Contract Registration. The CCR is a central storage location for your information, and eliminates the need for you to provide to separately to each federal agency. Just click the link for "Start New Registration" and provide the information requested.
Depending on the size and complexity of your business, it will take you about an hour to complete your registration.
Once you've registered at CCR, you can bid on contracting opportunities listed at www.FBO.gov, where all government agencies publicize government procurement opportunities over $25,000.
