Federal Procurement

By Presidential Memorandum, strengthened by the Federal Acquisitions Streamlining Act of 1994 (FASA), the federal government began accelerating the process of moving from a paper-based system to an electronic system. Acquisition information such as solicitations, offers, contracts, purchase orders, invoices, payments, and other contractual documents will be exchanged between federal users and commercial suppliers electronically. Beginning in July 1995, Army, Air Force, and certain Navy sites were authorized to issue electronic solicitations for purchases up to $100,000. Additionally, Federal Acquisition Computer Network (FACNET) certified sites are expected to post 100% of their requirements. Sites that are not yet FACNET certified are issuing electronic solicitations for purchases up to $50,000.

Commerce Business Daily (CBD) is the publication listing federal requests for quotations for items over $25,000 and contract awards over $25,000 that are likely to result in the award of subcontracts. FACNET-capable agencies are exempted from CBD posting requirements for commercial items up to $5,000,000 and for any purchase under $100,000 that is posted on FACNET.

The Department of Defense and the federal government have approved Simplix as a Value Added Network (VAN) and software provider. Additionally, the Department of Defense (DoD) is converting SAACONS, SPEDE, Federal SACONS, and other electronic initiatives to the standard approach. Companies can access information from these sources directly through SIMPLIX-W.

As a SIMPLIX-W customer, you have the opportunity to dramatically increase your sales. Simplix customers have increased their sales by thousands of dollars per month.

Invoicing

Simplix supports three billing options: annual payments by check, annual payments by credit card, and automatic monthly charges by credit card.

All clients are responsible for paying a one-time network connection fee of $200.00.

The annual payment plan mandates prepayment of mailbox fees for a twelve month period. Clients paying in advance receive a $50 prepayment discount. Thus, the annual mailbox fee is $850/year. (A total of $1,050 is charged the first year, due to the addition of the network connection fee.)

Clients paying the annual fee in advance by cash, check, or money order receive both the $50 prepayment discount plus an additional $100 cash discount and thus pay only $750/year. (New clients paying by cash, check, or money order pay $950 the first year, due to the addition of the $200 network connection fee.)

Payment in advance is non-refundable.

Clients electing the monthly payment plan provide Visa, MasterCard, or American Express account information that is kept on file for the company. Account fees are billed (charged) in arrears to the credit card on file. Mailbox fees paid on a monthly basis are $75/month. (A total of $275.00[2] is charged the first month, due to the addition of the network connection fee.)

Customers receive an electronic invoice each month.

2. The charge for the first month may be less than $275, due to pro-rating. On-going costs are billed at $3.00/day.
