The government marketplace presents contracting opportunities to all kinds of businesses because it buys more than just ball bearings, weapons systems and engineering services. In fact, there is great variety in the products and services federal, state and local governments need.

We recently assisted a small New Hampshire business respond to a RFP from the National Park Service for a replica of a 21-foot long braided woolen rug for the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial in Lincoln City, Ind.

How unique – and how interesting – that a small New Hampshire company is able and well-qualified to bid on such an unusual contract.

Luckily, the business heard about this opportunity by word of mouth, but small businesses can’t count on luck to grow.

This is why you need to take a few moments and connect with us. You never know what the government is looking to buy and you may well be eminently qualified to do the job or provide the service.
