There is federal, state, and local procurement.  The federal government alone typically purchases $400+ BILLION in goods and services — from light bulbs to PR, and from landscaping services to food products. Last year, over $100 billion was awarded to small businesses. So, the opportunity here is tremendous. However, new small business entrants to government contracting in general face significant time-consuming and costly challenges.
