How to do Business with the U.S. Marshals Service

Ten Steps to Doing Business with the USMS

1. Identify your product/service. Know the Federal Supply Class or Service (FSC/SVC) codes and the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes for your products or services.

2. To do business with USMS, vendors need a DUNS number. To apply for or look up your company’s number, go to the Dun & Bradstreet website.

3. Vendors must register with SAM. All vendors must have a Contractor and Government Entity (CAGE) code. If you do not have a CAGE code, one will be assigned to you when you complete the SAM registration. This registration must be updated annually before the expiration date. Be sure to completely fill out the SAM application, including every business classification that applies to your company. If you need further information, visit the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

4. Identify your target market within USMS. Identify what the USMS procures. Review the USMS website and industry publications.

5. Match your company’s capabilities to the Federal Supply Schedule. Contact the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) for information on how to obtain a Federal Supply Schedule contract. Many USMS purchases are, in fact, orders on FSS contracts.

6. Perform FedBizOps search to find opportunities. Visit Federal Business Oportunities.

7. Familiarize yourself with USMS Contracting procedures. Be familiar with the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and the Justice Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement.

8. Explore subcontracting opportunities. Obtain information on subcontracting opportunities through the SBA’s SUB-Net or Subcontracting Opportunities Directory. Solicitations or notices are posted by prime contractors.

9. Research small business programs. Visit the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to learn about Small business development and mentoring programs.

10. Market your company. Key steps in marketing your company include, but are not limited to having a plan and a budget, a great product and/or service, a professional brand, and powerful marketing materials.
