Small businesses are extremely under-represented in the government market. We've created a Fast Track Coaching Program to help your business grow in the Federal, state, and local government contracting market.
1) 99.7% of all companies in America are small businesses (SBA size standards), yet less than 22% of Federal contracting dollars are awarded to small businesses.
2) 41% of all US companies are owned by women, yet less than 3.7% of Federal contracting dollars are awarded to women owned small businesses.
3) Minorities make up 43.9% of the US population, yet only 7.8% of Federal contracting dollars are awarded to minority firms.

Government: the LARGEST consumer in the world!
The total spending for Federal, state and local government is $6 trillion. The Federal government is the largest consumer in the world, with a $4 trillion budget and contract spending of over $500 billion awarded to the private sector. Despite the huge amount of money being spent, less than 1% of companies are actively winning government contracts. Therefore, there is a tremendous need to support companies and help them open doors for greater opportunities in the public sector.

The need for greater support
Government agencies seek greater participation from qualified vendors, but are realizing that many businesses don’t fully understand the procurement process. Businesses seek to win contracts with government agencies, but face challenging hurdles to navigate the rules, regulations, strategic alliances, purchasing methodologies, and other obstacles the government market presents. In 2007, the Census reported that there were over 31 million businesses in the US; yet, it is estimated that less than 200,000 companies win federal contracts annually.
Government Contractors Association, Inc (GCA)
GCA is a national professional trade association for companies interested in pursuing government contracts, existing companies already in the public market, universities, non-profit organizations, government agencies and staff from the federal, state and local level.
Government Contractors Association (GCA) was formed because there was a void in this space. Even though government contracting has been around over 200 years, less than 1% of companies are winning government contracts. Our mission is to help change that.
Government Contractors Association was formed to advocate, facilitate and educate its members. GCA will support our members through educational curriculum, certification, prep and strategy training. We want to foster teaming, joint venture, alliance and mentor protege relationships. We want to be the voice of government contractors.
