how can I find contracts for my small IT business?

Filing a Protest

Mr. Ledbetter,
 
I just got word from the CO regarding my latest bid. He told me the contract was awarded to my competitor. There were only two companies that bid on their contract and I know my price was lower, but I still lost. There can be no question about technical qualifications since I have been in this business for 20 years. I am no newby to federal contracting either, but one thing that I have never done is file a protest. My competitor is a HubZone certified business, but this was a small business set-aside.

Other Services

Mr. Ledbetter,
 
My company is a machine shop. I have 15 employees and own all my equipment. We are  like a lot of companies. We have gone through a real dry spell. Out revenues are lower than last year and I've been putting money into the company to keep it the talent in tact, essentially paying the employees out of my pocket. We have never done business with the government, but some of my big customers do. I am looking for a way to  stabilize and increase sales, federal contracting parts and hardware will be a new market for us, but I like it because it is the same things we already make.
