How To Do Business With JMC

Contact the Office of Small Business Programs - DSN: 793-7302 COMM: 309-782-7302 usarmy.RIA.asc.list.sb@army.mil

Discuss your firm's capabilities with a Small Business Advisor to determine if there are prime or subcontract opportunities with the JMC for your company's products or services.

We highly recommend you check the Federal Business Opportunities ( FedBizOpps) Web page. The FedBizOpps is a listing of advertised Government acquisitions over $25,000. The FedBizOpps also lists contract awards and is a good source for subcontracting opportunities. Visit the FedBizOpps on the Internet at: www.fbo.gov

In order to do business with the JMC or with the Department of Defense, a company must be registered in the System for Award Management. Registration online at: www.sam.gov

We recommend that Small Businesses also complete the Small Business Administration (SBA) Dynamic Small Business Search (DSBS) registration. DSBS is an electronic search engine for Contracting Officers, a marketing tool for Small Businesses, and a link to procurement opportunities as well as other important information for Small Businesses. This registration can be done while in the SAM site. First, select Update or Renew Registrations Using TPIN, then select Update/Renew, it will lead you to the DSBS section when you've completed the SAM portion.

Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) capability is required for all companies that do business with the US Government. It is the legally mandated method of payment for all contracts.

The North American Industry Classification System has codes that the US Government uses to identify and classify categories of businesses' products and services. The Small Business Administrative (SBA) applies a size standard to each NAICS code.
