There’s a big business out there that you most likely aren’t taking advantage of. It’s the billion-dollar business of government contracting that the federal government shares with small businesses everywhere. Yet despite such tremendous business opportunity, some have shied away from government contracting because of “red tape.” In his book, The Small-Business Guide to Government Contracts: How to Comply With the Key Rules and Regulations…and Avoid Terminated Agreements, Fines or Worse, author Steven Koprince shares the inside scoop on how to stay compliant and educated to get a piece of that billion-dollar pie.

From far away, the world of government contracting can seem overwhelming. But once you understand the federally mandated rules and how to abide by them, government contracting is a lucrative way to grow a business. Koprince’s book is a great resource for understanding the essentials of contracting, such as how to navigate requirements for:

  • Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)
  • HUBZone
  • 8(a)
  • WOSB

As an experienced procurement lawyer, Koprince offers a legal perspective on how to avoid penalties and keep contracts alive and growing. He also makes it easy for the reader by providing a compliance-at-a-glance checklist of the most important rules and regulations to keep in mind. What’s more, the book includes an entire chapter dedicated to Women-Owned Small Businesses programs and how to capture opportunities reserved for women business owners.

Cutting through the legalese, Koprince has crafted an easy-to-read reference for business owners to break into the government contracting market. As he writes, “This book is intended

for the busy small business owner who doesn’t have the resources to consult with a lawyer on every government contracting decision or the time to master the thousands of pages on his or her own.”

With real-life examples, The Small Business Guide to Government Contracts lays out the opportunities, risks and important rules that business owners need to know to maintain a strong government contracting business. All in all, it’s a great way for business owners to educate themselves and capture huge business opportunities they may have been missing out on.
