    The Government’s answer to coaching/boot-strapping Small Businesses to be successful in the Federal & Military procurement – acquisition – contracting arena…achieved by encouraging large businesses to partner with Small Businesses for 1-3 years under a relaxed set of contracting standards that would otherwise/normally violate the FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulations).


    Federal Allies Institute's answer to coaching/boot-strapping Small Businesses to be successful is
    The Federal Allies Network.

    "It is my belief that membership in Federal Allies Institute should be considered the most important tool in the small business tool box. I have been in the small business world for 37 years and I have never belonged to an organization that has so much to offer."
