2019 is bringing some big changes to GCAP!
SAM: How to detect a SCAM?
We here at GCAP have always told our clients to watch for an email from “.gov” when working on your SAM.That was the test to be sure the email communication was from SAM and not a private business trying to get you to pay for your SAM registration.
Unfortunately, it’s no longer possible to use a simple “.gov” test to determine if an email comes from an agency-authorized source or a for-profit purveyor of expensive contracting assistance. Recent developments on both sides of the equation have made the distinction muddier than ever.
GCAP is Oregon's Procurement Technical Assistance Center
The Government Contract Assistance Program (GCAP) is part of a nationwide network of Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTAC) working to help small businesses compete successfully in the government marketplace.
GCAP's mission is to assist Oregon small businesses to succeed in obtaining Government Contracts, which stimulate the growth of Oregon's economy. For over 30 years GCAP has assisted Oregon small businesses in creating jobs, fostering economic diversity, and becoming successful government contractors.
