Make Government Your Customer.

  • The federal government buys over 17 million different commercial items.
  • The government pays its bills.
  • The federal government pays net 30 days after it receives an accurate and complete invoice.
  • The federal government spends approximately $300 – $500 billion each year depending on the budget. 25% percent of that is set aside for small businesses.
  • New York State spends approximately $40 billion in products and services each year.
  • Governments – federal and state – have special programs to help small businesses in various categories such as Minority and Women owned, Veterans/Services-Disabled owned, companies located in Historically Underutilized Business zones.
