The following chart shows how it all breaks down:

Solutions for Enterprise

We're proud that our offering covers the range from small business to very large enterprise. We have tools purpose built for small business‒with our integrated Pipeline Tools, you won't need a separate CRM to build and manage your opportunities pipeline.

We aim for a broad enterprise footprint, facilitating not just business development and capture, but strategic activities as well. Larger organizations have unique challenges and needs in government contracting. This usually means pipelines are more strategic and pursuits are more thoughtful. We're pleased that Federal Compass has been embraced by very large enterprises with a strategy-first philosophy around opportunities. We challenge organizations to first ask "why" before pursuing an opportunity. Does this align with my strategy? Is strategy applied consistently across the organization, and what checks are in place to ensure that those responsible for execution are aligned with that vision? Federal Compass offers a robust platform serving those needs.

Solutions for Small Business

A majority of our customers are small business contractors, some with just a single user in the system. We understand that when wearing so many different hats, small business owners and employees need the right tools to maximize productively while offering a comprehensive view of the market landscape. We also built a fully integrated set of pipeline tools so that businesses don't have to invest in a separate CRM to manage opportunities.

Federal Compass offers unique solutions for every member of your government contracting team.

The March Toward GWACS: CIO-SP4, POLARIS, 8(a) STARS III

Is your company prepared for the shifting landscape within Federal IT procurement? For nearly twenty years, GSA Schedules and agency-IDIQs paved the way for the evolution of second-tier competitions. In 2019, GWACs outpaced IDIQs, for the first time, to become the Government's preferred pathway. Every Federal customer interacts with GWACs, and these vehicles continue to lure in new adopters. From the broad range of services to the number of contractors vying for work, the loyalty to IDIQs is waning as customers begin their march towards GWACs. For many, this statement makes sense; however, getting on a GWAC, let alone finding success, creates a challenge unique to these types of vehicles. It isn't enough to know POLARIS, CIO-SP4, and 8(a) STARS III; a clear vision and strategy are critical to determining the right team, surviving the scorecard, and moving into post-award with a proactive plan to capture business, rather than hopelessly reacting.
