Guard Force International, Inc Wins Nearly $550,000 Contract from Department of Veterans Affairs Following Services from US Federal Contractor Registration
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
US Federal Contractor Registration has announced their client Guard Force International, Inc has recently been awarded a contract from the Department of Veterans Affairs valued at nearly $ 550,000, according to the award notice posted to FedBizOpps.gov.
Guard Force International, Inc recently worked with Joe McNichols, a placement specialist with US Federal Contractor Registraiton, in order to update their D&B, CCR, and ORCA records to reflect a change in the company?s name. When the company contacted US Federal Contractor Registration, Mr. McNichols explained the process and followed up with the company multiple times to verify the status of Guard Force International?s CCR registration, devoting many hours to ensuring the company?s CCR registration was successfully updated and that any concerns were addressed to their satisfaction.
In a testimonial letter to US Federal Contractor Registration, Gordon L Brooks, President and CEO of Guard Force International, Inc wrote:
?I wanted to take a moment to fully express my appreciation for Mr. Joe McNichols attention to detail and his hard work with making things happen. It is the selfless dedication as a Customer Service Representative that makes your Department one of the best resources for vendors servicing the Federal Government. I want to thank your Department and Mr. Joe McNichols for your commitment and dedication to duty. It is genuinely, and [sic] honor and a pleasure to know people have your best interest!?
Joe McNichols and US Federal Contractor Registration have helped thousands of companies complete the registration required in order to bid on and win federal government contracts. Mr. McNichols? past clients also include Sears Holdings, XS International, ServiceMaster Clean and Rock Crazy.
in order to be eligible for federal contracts, vendors must complete mandatory registration. This includes obtaining a DUNS number, completing CCR registration and submitting their ORCA filing. Individual agencies may also have their own registration requirements, such as FEMA?s Vendor Profile registration. Vendors will also need to complete the upcoming SAM migration which will take the place of CCR and ORCA, scheduled to launch in late July.
The Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center has reported that nearly 20% of all current CCR records contain errors or omissions. Problems with CCR and ORCA can cost businesses time and money as even simple mistakes can disqualify a vendor from a contract award or even result in fines and punitive actions. Additionally, there are many rules and regulations that govern federal contracting. The Federal Acquisition Regulations manual, which regulates government contracting and instructs vendors how to complete the ORCA, is over 2000 pages long and written in legal terms that may confuse the average contractor.
US Federal Contractor Registration helps businesses like Guard Force International Inc avoid these headaches by helping them process their registration.
US Federal Contractor Registration is a third party registration firm with corporate offices in Orlando, FL that has helped thousands of businesses complete their CCR registration and bid on contracts. US Federal Contractor Registration pairs businesses with a dedicated case manager who helps them every step of the way from initial registration to bidding on contracts.

Since the mid-1990s, demand for the Security Services industry has grown in line with outsourcing by corporate and government clients. It relies on security outsourcing by retail centers, banks and other businesses. ?Unfortunately for operators, the industry has recently battled greater competition and falling security budgets during the recession,? says IBISWorld industry analyst Kevin Culbert. Consequently, revenue has remained relatively flat during the five years to 2012, decreasing an estimated 0.2% annually on average to $ 28.2 billion.
The recession forced many clients to reduce their security budgets, while others closed offices, causing industry demand to decline. ?Some companies eliminated security altogether, while others ceased security outsourcing and brought the task in-house,? Culbert explains. ?Also, many clients reduced the number of guards working in a shift or the number of hours that are patrolled each day.? These factors caused industry revenue to decline in 2008 and 2009. Coupled with the decline in demand during the recession, rising competition has caused profit margins to fall. In response, larger industry players are offering more value-added services to mitigate profit declines. Other firms have taken advantage of the temporary decline and expanded their operations by acquiring smaller players. Current Security Services industry companies include Securitas AB, G4S PLC, Allied Security LLC, The Brink?s Company and Loomis AB.
Security firms offer a variety of services, including security with guards, armored transportation and private investigation. Accounting for about three-quarters of industry revenue, security guards are the industry’s most widely used service. Unfortunately for security firms, these labor-intensive activities are being substituted by monitoring technology and equipment, such as closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems, which are provided by the Security Alarm Services industry (IBISWorld report 56162). The industry has a lot of medium- and large-size firms, which typically offer integrated security, value-added services and cash handling. During the five years to 2017, the overall level of concentration is not expected to change significantly. Over the period, downstream businesses will increase their security budgets as sentiment improves and more funds become available. Many clients will increase their security staff and the hours that guards are on duty. The rise in demand is projected to boost revenue, but external competition from alarm companies will remain an issue and weigh on industry profit.

Trust Guard responds to recent blog reports posing questions on the rise of hacking. Dave Brandley, Co-Founder of Trust Guard said, ?Everywhere you look nowadays there seems to be a report of hackers financially compromising companies and stealing personal data all over the world. Website security companies are struggling to warn consumers and urge business owners to step up and increase their security. I?m frequently asked: How bad is the problem really??
Silicon Angle, a computer and social science blog recently covered the issue. They featured the question posed by blog, Freakonomics, who asked IT security experts: ?Why has there been such a spike in hacking recently? Or is it merely a function of us paying closer attention and of institutions being more open about reporting security breaches?? It’s a question that has been in headlines for months.
?The answers have run the gamut from the noting that hacking hasn?t really been on the rise over the past year but media interest has been much bigger than before and that hacking is on the rise because connectivity and Internet intrusion into our everyday lives has increased. From the looks of it, actually hacking itself may not be on the rise; but the type of hacks designed to capture the hearts and minds of the media might be? wrote Kit Dotson of Silicon Angle.
Hacking has been seen in the media all over the world with culprits from teenagers to professionals. Game networks are allegedly crashing, and it?s been reported that government documents are being brought to public view. Reportedly even the pentagon has managed to lose data.
In response, Brandley, says, ?Hacking is being reported more by the media because hacks are more frequent, bigger, and growing at a rapid rate. I believe that the media is reporting it more because the threat is increasing. We also know that people are too comfortable with the Internet and that for the most part they don’t know how to determine if a website is safe or not. Because the Internet is such a vital technology in our lives now people need to be more weary than ever before. Lack of education by website owners is the main reason hacking is getting easier. ?
And to make matters worse hackers will soon be able to hack everything from computers to cars.
?As more and more functions get embedded in the digital technology of automobiles, the threat of attack and malicious manipulation increases,? Said Stuart McClure, of McAfee Secure
?This is clearly not a matter of better reporting? said Brandley, ?It is a matter of a new digital world with a more intelligent and harder to catch criminal. Prevention is key when it comes to this kind of crime. Website security scanning is the first and most important step in protecting your personal information as it exists in the digital world. It?s necessary to prevent security holes from opening in the first place?.

Clapper Patti Schweizer & Mason, attorneys who specialize in mesothelioma lawsuits, support the U.S. Coast Guard in two major ways. Christine Renken, an attorney with the law firm, was just nominated and voted in as the new president of the North Bay Coast Guard Spouses Club (?NBCGSC? ) for the 2011-2012 year. In addition, CPSM sponsors the National Coast Guard Day, August 4, 2011 with a substantial donation and door prize.
As president, Renken, the wife of active duty member Chief Machinery Technician Kenneth Renken, will promote and guide the Spouses Club in all its endeavors. As military families do not often stay in one place very long, Spouses Clubs are integral for military families to furnish educational information, provide a support system, offer community service and create fellowship.
The NBCGSC engages in fundraising throughout the year to support its commitment to community service, as well as the support of military families. This past year, NBCGSC has donated to community and military organizations, including Hospice by the Bay Foundation and the military organization that operates Operation Purple Camps for military children.
Renken will be in charge of the North Bay Spouses? club participation in celebrating Coast Guard Day on August 4, 2011 at Coast Guard Island Alameda. In addition, CPSM has made a substantial donation that will support the National Coast Guard Day and help cover some cost of desirable door prizes to be given away.
The Coast Guard officially began on August 4, 1790 and is the oldest maritime service in the United States. It was the only armed force at sea until the Navy was established in 1798. The official use of the name Coast Guard began in 1915.
The United States Coast Guard is dedicated to ensuring the safety of those at sea, enforcing Federal maritime laws in oceans, coastal waters and inland waterways, and protecting the marine environment throughout the nation. Coast Guard Day, held Aug 4th, is now the largest community celebration of all the branches of military in the nation.
CPSM is showing their support due to the large number of Veterans and active servicemen from the Coast Guard, as well as all branches of the military, who were exposed to asbestos during their time of duty and have now developed or died from mesothelioma, a fatal form of cancer, or asbestosis, an incurable scarring of the lungs.
To read more about how exposure to asbestos occurs for Coast Guard members and what to do if you are a veteran or active duty member and need assistance, please visit the Veterans Section of the CPSM website that contains information specific to the Coast Guard.
