Third-Party Contracting Assistance 

Nonprofit Empowerment Group's capabilities are complemented by their partnership with US Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR). The company entrusts USFCR to maintain their System for Award Management registration as well as their government formatted website. Since, US Federal Contractor Registration designed the website through the Simplified Acquisition Program, when information needs to be updated across the board it is accomplished swiftly. Angela Massey, President of Nonprofit Empowerment Group talked to USFCR about a recent change to her company that Case Manager Christie Jackson and Web Development Director Kamron Nelson were able to promptly update. Angela explained,

“As we were submitting new bids, we wanted to make sure that our information would match our website so there wouldn’t be a disconnect. It was really important that all of it was updated timely and accurately. USFCR has been a great partner in that process.”

Building Relationships With Contracting Officers

President Angela Massey explains that her company submitted multiple bids over the last few years before winning this one. They used valuable debriefing information when contracting officers awarded the work to other companies. This information helped evolve their proposals. Angela has more than fourteen years of experience in nonprofit management and the financial services industry. In her professional capacity, she works with a group of the world’s foremost public, private and philanthropic leaders. She has extensive experience in working with Heads of State, high-level government officials, donor networks, multilateral agencies, corporations and the not-for-profit sector. In course of her work she has travelled to about two dozen countries across Europe, Middle East, Africa & Asia. Angela Massey is a United Nations Alliance of Civilizations Fellow, which aims at enhancing the mutual knowledge and understanding between peoples of Northern and Southern hemispheres.

“Contracting officers play an important role in this space,” Angela stated. She explained how receiving feedback on offers from contracting officers not only can help future bids be more responsive, but also can build motivation for contractors to keep moving forward. Angela speaks with USFCR Acquisition Specialist John Lynch once or twice a year to make sure she is on track to meet her goals of winning federal contracts.

"Angela and I made an immediate connection from the beginning of our relationship," John Lynch says. "We spent the time up front to target the spaces where her company would be most valued. This way her efforts as a federal contractor were focused and efficient."

Nonprofit Empowerment Group's name appeared on the shortlist for a contract with California last year. After that high point in their evolution they made key connections this year. Ultimately, these relationships and past performances helped them evolve their winning proposal. Information that was key was how Nonprofit Empowerment Group's services would fit in with the bigger picture at the agency.

On this topic Angela explained, “The technical adviser gave us a better idea of the bigger scheme of things and how our services fit so we could polish up & align our services.”

Nonprofit Empowerment Group has several bids in the works and we look forward to hearing about their next contract win.
