Can I submit my application with more then one firm?

Posted by sweens on January 14, 2010

Many of the candidates I deal with for Government contracting are aware that on most Government contract opportunities, they are unable to submit their resumes to multiple firms for the same opportunity.  This means that you have to go with one firm and one firm only.  This is not usually a huge problem but when you have a very specific requirement where there are so few resources located geographically, the competition for those few resources picks up quickly. 

 This is where time of recruitment becomes such a key component of success.  With that being said, candidates need to be aware that they are unable to circumvent this policy.  Candidates that do agree to have their resumes submitted by two different companies for the same opportunity will be ruled non-compliant.

 There are some exceptions to this and from time to time an opportunity can come up where you will be able to submit yourself with more then one firm.  This usually takes places when a company is being asked to bid a project team rather then one individual resource.  Candidates need to be aware if they can or can not bid with more then one firm before they approach numerous firms about the same opportunity.
