USAGM champions competition, fair opportunity, and meeting government-wide small business goals and programs by providing small businesses with meaningful business opportunities.
In order to conduct business with the USAGM, potential vendors must:
- obtain a DUNS number from Dun & Bradstreet and
- register their business in the Government’s System for Award Management website. For detailed information on registering in SAM, new users should access SAM’s Full User Guides help section, while international registrants should also access SAM’s International Registrants help section.
Once a vendor’s SAM registration shows as Active in SAM, the vendor may pursue contract opportunities with USAGM by
- searching the government’s Federal Business Opportunities website, or
- visiting our current opportunities page which lists contract opportunities between $15,000 and $25,000 in value and provides FBO links to contract opportunities exceeding $25,000 in value.
Small businesses may also contact the agency’s Competition Advocate and representative for Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) Jim McGuirk, email@example.com.
Use of Electronic Invoice Processing at USAGM
USAGM has implemented the use of smart government invoicing by implementing the use of the Invoice Processing Platform (IPP). All vendors conducting business with the Agency are required to enroll in IPP at the time of receiving a contract award and must submit all invoices through IPP.
