Doing Business with the U.S. Coast Guard

The U.S. Coast Guard uploads information about upcoming requirements over $150,000 early in the contracting process, before the solicitation documents are posted on FedBizOpps.  This is a great opportunity to learn about future RFPs, including Points-of-Contact who can give you additional information.

The Coast Guard’s Contracting Office is made up of four branches, organized by function:

  1. Emergency Services – Oil Spill, Earthquake, Hurricane, HAZMAT Emergency Response contracting; COOP Planning; and Support for Incident Command System efforts
  2. Commercial Support Services – Base Operating Support Services, Security, Grounds Maintenance, Janitorial Services, Food Service, etc.
  3. Purchasing, Interagency Agreements, and Utilities -Utilities and Simplified Acquisitions under $150,000
  4. Supply and Base Support – supplies and services for requirements not associated with “routine base services” to include contracts for buoys, lanterns

The Coast Guards ‘Contractor Road Map’ has a great deal of helpful information about doing business with the agency.
