The NCUA’s Division of Procurement and Facilities Management is responsible for procuring all goods and services that meet a wide range of needs throughout the agency, including financial and accounting services, information technology services, and facilities support services, among others.
The NCUA focuses on finding vendors that offer the best value to help the agency meet its mission. Our contracting specialists employ various acquisitions methods, including requests for information, requests for quote and requests for proposal. Our specialists also generate vendor lists through their own market research using a variety of sources, such as our vendor registration database, the Central Contractor Registration, FedBizOpps, the GSA schedule and referrals from the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion.
A Commitment to Supplier Diversity
At the NCUA, the commitment and responsibility for advancing diversity in its procurement activities rests with all agency employees who have responsibility for inviting, selecting, evaluating, and approving vendors. The NCUA’s procurement practices incorporate procedures that enhance opportunities for diverse vendors to participate in the agency’s business contracting activities. As such, the NCUA works closely with other agencies and partners, such as the Small Business Administration and the Small Business Development Centers, to identify and invite minority- and women-businesses to participate in its procurement opportunities. This helps to ensure the agency meet a strong competitive structure within its procurement process.
How to do Business with the NCUA
Unlike the majority of federal agencies, the NCUA is not subject to the Federal Acquisition Regulation. NCUA’s specific procurement rules offer a simpler process for vendors to do business with the agency.
As a result, the NCUA is not required to advertise its solicitations in FedBizOpps. Instead, the agency uses a competitive process to acquire goods and services that entails generating a vendor list and inviting vendors to submit quotes or proposals in response to opportunities. As such, it is critical that vendors interested in doing business with the NCUA complete the agency’s vendor registration form (opens new window).
Although not required to, the NCUA recommends that its current and prospective vendors also register at the System for Awards Management (www.sam.gov (opens new window)), which is the federal government’s central vendor registration database.
If you are a potential vendor interested in doing business with the NCUA, complete our Vendor Registration Form and send it to the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion.
