ARE YOU A HUBZONE COMPANY RESPONDING TO SOURCES SOUGHT / RFIs?

REMEMBER –

The best way to get a federal contracting opportunity Set-Aside for HUBZone companies ... is to REQUEST that the contract be set aside during the Sources Sought market research phase! 

TAKE ACTION

Neil McDonnell recommends the following strategy to promote a HUBZone Set-Aside designation on the contracts you are interested:

BY EMAIL

When responding by email to the government on a given opportunity, add the recommended text (shown below) into the body of your email message, in addition to your own content.

RESPONSES

In addition to requesting the set-aside opportunity in your email, place this text on the first page or Executive Summary of your RFI response. It is important to highlight this language – using a box works best. 

BE BOLD!

Make your request bold to ensure the Contracting Officer notices it and that HUBZone requests are recognized.

RECOMMENDED LANGUAGE:

We respectfully request this opportunity be designated as a Competitive HUBZone Set Aside. We have coordinated with the HUBZone Chamber of Commerce to ensure you can have a reasonable expectation that 2 or more HUBZone-certified small businesses will submit a proposal against this RFP, should it come out. These proposals will be from procurement ready firms quoting reasonable market rates.
