Washington, DC-MD-VA-WV – Every 20 seconds of every working day, the U.S. Government issues a contract. Last fiscal year, U.S. Government allocated $ 409 billion for contracting. This makes the U.S. Government the largest marketplace in the world and a great opportunity for your business. The information on government contracting is plentiful, but sifting through extraneous information to find exactly what you need is an arduous task. To ease the information gathering process, we have assembled as much pertinent information as possible to help you obtain resources and avoid some of the pitfalls, time, money and frustration commonly experienced in government contracting.
The 2010 edition of “The Government Contractor’s Resource Guide” is now available as an e-book. This guide has been used by government contractors, contracting officers, and as resource material for university curriculum, featured in national newspapers and magazines.
“I had one goal in mind when the first edition came out in 2006, to produce an easy to use guide which incorporated my lessons learned and resources gathered from my research and almost two decades of experience as a government contractor.” states Gallagher, “When I first started out, like many others new to government contracting it seemed unfathomable that a business – never mind a small business – could penetrate the walls of government contracting and unlock the keys to success.
After many years of attending workshops, expos, training, and conducting outreach for the government all the while using my own marketing research background, I managed to harvest the key materials located throughout countless websites, books, handouts and documents, policies and procedures. I incorporated into The Government Contractor’s Resource Guide what I believe to be among the most relevant of this information, compiled into an affordable easy to use 177 page guide.”
The Guide contains information issued helpful for both large and small business going after contracts and serves as a quick reference for procurement and contracting officers when contracting with business.
“From the time the first edition was published back in 2006 testimonials keep pouring in” says Gallagher, “The testimonials on The Guide’s usefulness range from a former U.S. government agency head overseeing small business contracting hailing it as one of the most comprehensive easy to use guides she has ever seen in or out of government, to other government contractors’ testimonials – even those with years of experience – expressing its usefulness especially with contact names, phone numbers. useful websites, policy and procedure references, samples of teaming agreements, nondisclosure agreement template, and even definitions of acronyms used everyday inside government. “Nothing is more costly than plunging into the sea of unknowns of government contracting with little or no information or with so much information it seems overwhelming.” she concludes. The Government Resource Guide helps the reader decipher what to do and what not to do – at the same time providing them with additional tools to continue training, marketing and networking such as where to attend FREE workshops and other online valuable resources.
The Government Contractor’s Resource Book provides various samples of Teaming Agreements, Subcontracting Agreements, and Non-Disclosure Agreements for the business. It also provides information on how to market to find contracting and subcontracting opportunities. In addition, the Resource Book arms the contractor with types of government bidding procedures and purchasing programs, as well as explaining the contractor’s responsibilities and administrative requirement when performing on government contracts.
The Government Contractor’s Resource Guide E-book is now available through retail bookstores, online at Google books, lulu, Amazon, among others and also directly available by going to the gov2biz website.

An Air Force major is ordered to approach a brilliant UFO in his Phantom jet over Tehran. He repeatedly attempts to engage and fire on unusual objects heading right toward his aircraft, but his missile control is locked and disabled. Witnessed from the ground, this dogfight becomes the subject of a secret report by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency.
In Belgium, an Air Force colonel investigates a series of widespread sightings of unidentified triangular objects, and he sends F-16s to attempt a closer look. Many hundreds of eyewitnesses, including on-duty police officers, file reports, and a spectacular photograph of an unidentifiable craft is retrieved and analyzed.
Here at home, a retired chief of the FAA’s Accidents and Investigations Division reveals the agency’s response to a thirty-minute encounter between an aircraft and a gigantic UFO over Alaska, which occurred during his watch and is documented on radar.
Now all three of these distinguished men have written breathtaking, firsthand accounts about these extraordinary incidents. They are joined by Air Force generals and a host of high-level sources—including Fife Symington III, former governor of Arizona, and Nick Pope, former head of the British Defence Ministry’s UFO Investigative Unit—who have agreed to write their own detailed, personal stories about UFO encounters and investigations for the first time.
They are coming forward now because of Leslie Kean, an investigative reporter who has spent the last ten years studying the still unexplained UFO phenomenon. Kean reviewed hundreds of government documents, aviation reports, radar data, and case studies with corroborating physical evidence. She carefully examined scientifically analyzed photographs and interviewed dozens of high-level officials and aviation witnesses from around the world. With the support of former White House chief of staff John Podesta, Kean draws on her research to separate fact from fiction and to lift the veil on decades of U.S. government misinformation. Throughout, she presents irrefutable evidence that unknown flying objects—metallic, luminous, and seemingly able to maneuver in ways that defy the laws of physics—actually exist.
No one yet knows what these objects are, even though they affect aviation safety and possibly national security. The phenomenon has been officially acknowledged by numerous foreign governments. For these reasons and many others, Kean concludes that the UFO problem must be more widely recognized and ultimately solved through an unbiased scientific investigation. The material presented throughout this landmark book is sobering, unflinching, and undeniably awe-inspiring, and moves us toward a goal of properly addressing this worldwide mystery.
