Unlocking the Untapped Potential: UK Businesses and the Lucrative US Government Market

Discover the vast opportunities within the annual $673 billion US government market and watch your company’s sales soar, all without hefty investments in marketing and advertising!

Did you know that companies based in the United Kingdom have an equal chance to bid on contract opportunities with the US Federal government alongside American companies? It’s an untapped potential that many UK businesses have yet to realize, as evident from the fact that out of over 777,000 companies registered in the US Federal government’s System for Award Management (SAM.gov) as of March 2023, only 2041 were UK-based. It’s clear that countless UK companies are missing out on the chance to compete for and secure profitable US government contracts.

Both the US and the UK are signatories to the WTO Government Procurement Agreement (GPA), which ensures that member countries can compete on a level playing field in government procurement across borders.

Consider this: Last year alone, the US Federal government awarded a staggering 11 million contracts for goods and services. While defense-related items make up a portion of these contracts, the US government procures almost every imaginable product and service utilized worldwide.

It’s important to note that foreign companies are not required to have a physical presence in the US to bid on government tenders. Furthermore, the size of a company does not hinder its chances of winning US government contracts. In fact, the majority of these contracts are awarded to medium-sized and small businesses.

Getting Started with the System for Award Management (SAM)

US government contracting is efficiently managed through the SAM platform, accessible at http://www.sam.gov. However, the first step for any company wishing to participate in open tenders is to establish a SAM account. Arnett & Lin Consultants (https://www.arnettlin.com) specialize in guiding UK companies through the SAM registration process, making it a seamless experience. Registering in SAM can be a daunting and time-consuming task, even for US companies, but with their expert assistance, the process becomes hassle-free.

Arnett & Lin Consultants offer SAM registration services for £499. However, by using the discount code ALUK23, UK companies can take advantage of a reduced fee of only £399. Additionally, companies availing of this service will receive a comprehensive 31-page guide detailing how to begin bidding on US government contracts once the SAM registration is successfully completed.

To express your company’s interest in registering with SAM, simply send a message to Arnett & Lin Consultants at mailto:[email protected].

Steven Arnett, a partner at Arnett & Lin Consultants, brings a wealth of expertise to the table, having previously served as the chief of the US National Codification Bureau and as the chief of codification for NATO.

Take a proactive step towards expanding your business horizons and unlocking the full potential of the US government market. Embrace this opportunity to position your UK-based company for remarkable growth and success.
