A Message from Our President, Maria Hulitt

I know how tedious, complex, intimidating, and confusing the process of going after government contracts can be. It is like learning a new language and not knowing where to start, which can be overwhelming and frustrating. In addition, there are a lot of companies out there that make unrealistic promises when it comes to winning bids, whose services can be very expensive but ultimately ineffective. Most of my clients come to me through a referral. In many cases, they have been burned by such firms or have attempted to go through the acquisition process themselves and have lost patience, or have stumbled upon a roadblock and gave up. Many just don’t have the time to take on such a complicated task. Just like you hire a seasoned CPA to prepare and submit your taxes, you can rely on me to assist you with completing and submitting your business certification application or coach you on how to produce and deliver a compliant proposal in response to an RFP.

I have provided services to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania since 2003. As a direct government contractor, I have gone through multiple certification acquisition processes and RFP proposal submissions. I have applied for and received grants and have developed extensive experience with what it takes to win and maintain a government contract. It took me years to become proficient in the science of government contracting and I learned how to not only win bids for myself, but I also help other small businesses go after government contracting opportunities as well.

Over the past 15 years, Strategic Contracting and its principals have obtained multiple 8(a) certifications, GSA Schedule contracts, Hub-Zone certifications, SDVOB Certifications, and have delivered over $40 Million Dollars in Contracts.

We specialize in firms which have been in business for 2 years or more and have not experienced their desired growth. We look at every client relationship on an individual basis, as our overall goal is to provide all the services required to strategically differentiate our client’s position and acquire them a contract. This strategy allows our clients to recoup their investment in our firm.

Strategic Contracting has an extensive network of large and small businesses which can often joint venture on projects. The SBA’s All Small Mentor-Protégé program offers a tremendous opportunity for participants to pursue set-aside contracts as joint venture partners. It is the only way in which a joint venture between a small business and large business can qualify for set-aside contracts. This value-add is without cost to our clients, and is just one of many ways we can assist your company’s penetration into the Federal Market.
