We are often contacted by individuals and businesses that say they want to get into federal contracting, and the first question we ask is whether they have done their market research to find out if there is in fact a market within the federal space for the products or services they provide. Many times, the answer we get is no and the response is generally accompanied by the question "is that something you guys can do for me?" Market research is a critical first step whether you are operating in the commercial or federal market, and is a task that we recommend business owners do themselves, as it something that must be done on an ongoing basis. To get you started, we are sharing some of the specific resources that we utilize when conducting market research.
