Our Vetting Process

Performance Assessment Rating System (PARS)

PARS is our proprietary performance rating tool that helps us predict the success of small businesses and subcontractors BEFORE you contract with them.

We use PARS to quantify the performance of potential small enterprises, subcontractors, freelancers, and other teaming partners.  

The tool uses a weighted scoring system to rate a company's past performance, its current performance, and use those as factors to predict future performance.  

The PARS Score is to government contractors and agencies what the credit score is to lenders.

How PARS Scoring Works

PARS scores small businesses in three core areas:  

1. Technical capability - How well companies do what they do  

2. Teaming suitability - The value they offer  

3. Government suitability - How well equipped they are for government contracts  

Each business analyzed and rated with PARS gets an Overall Performance rating, but you don't just get that one important number. PARS also generates a series of scores in more than a dozen different categories that primes, agencies, and organizations can analyze to determine which companies would make good teaming partners and which are best-suited for subcontracting work.

How We Use PARS for Matchmaking

There's no shortage of good companies out there. But you want the best companies for your project. There's a difference.

PARS helps us identify top-rated, top-performaning small businesses that are best-suited to perform on your contract. 

PARS helps us match women-owned, minority-owned, veteran-owned small businesses to the right projects.

Recruiting small businesses to perform government contractors

Recruiting Small Business to Perform Government Contracts

Small businesses that meet our assessment criteria and that rate favorably with PARS are entered into the Teaming Exchange Network (TEN).  

TEN is our standalone web-based marketplace. A company's PARS scores are transferred into TEN and we use the platform to match small businesses with existing projects. 

If we do not find companies that we believe are well-suited to perform your contract, we begin recruiting efforts using the team members we have in different cities around the country to publicize the opportunity and attract potential qualified small business partners.

Contract Negotiations and Management

The Contracts and Grants team will handle the subcontractor agreements. We negotiate new contracts and manage existing contracts.  

We oversee subcontractor performance to ensure the company delivers according to the contract, within budget and on time. 

We generate detailed reports for your team so you always know what's going on with your Small Business Participation Program, but you no longer have to allocate resources to manage the program internally. 

This saves you time, money and other valuable resources and allows you to focus on growing your business in stead of managing your contractors.
