GRL is the result of a collaboration between experienced federal Contracting Officers and the leadership team of FedBizAccess.
Former federal Contracting Officers, Buyers, and Contract Administrators bring unparalleled insight and value in helping small businesses gain a competitive advantage in their bid and teaming strategies.
FedBizAccess provides an online platform and tools to help small businesses meet one another, collaborate and succeed together in government contracting. Through its innovative online platform, FedBizAccess provides the opportunity for small businesses to connect to high performance Contracting Officer teams and prepares those small businesses to maximize their time spent.
Through their years of collective experience, the former Contracting Officers FBA consulted about their experience observed the same scenario play out time and again. Small businesses competing for federal contracts - qualified, capable, and reputable small businesses - were consistently losing contracting opportunities to the larger, more experienced contractors. The Contracting Officers identified that the reason for this was lack of support and guidance for the small businesses with limited budgets.
GRL is intended to provide the support small businesses need to succeed in government contracting by removing roadblocks and providing a clear, step-by-step guide to succeeding in government contracting - guidance that comes directly from the Contracting Officers that award the contracts.
FedBizAccess has utilized the knowledge it has gained from the former Contracting Officers it has consulted with to develop the GRL strategy. The GRL is a step-by-step process to prepare your company for government contracting.
The result? Your company gets clear direction about where you stand in terms of Government Readiness Level in the eyes of a Contracting Officer, and next steps to succeed. You save time, money and resources, and you position your company to increase revenues through government contracting.
The key to starting out is understanding that every small business - regardless of size, experience, goals, industry - has a GRL level. Therefore, if you are a small business owner, you already have a GRL level. The role of FedBizAccesss is to introduce you to the core concepts of the GRL, and help you identify where you stand today.
From there, the focus is on what to do next. This is the biggest difference between the GRL and other government contracting support services - you are never presented with a product or service unless your company has met the parameters of the GRL. By following this method, the GRL ensures you are not spending time or money on a product, service or strategy before you are ready.
Conversely, you are not presented with products or services that do not clearly help you progress your Government Readiness Level.
The GRL helps you understand where you are, and what to do...next.
GRL matters to your company if you are interested in pursuing government contracts, and are at a stage where you have to make a decision about committing time, money, or resources to that strategy.
GRL is the most efficient, appropriate, and direct path to help you maximize the return on your decision to pursue government contracting by reducing education time, costs, and wasted efforts.

However, the one significant disadvantage faced by every small business is limited capital in comparison to the larger companies they are bidding against. Why does this matter?
