It is important that you get your company on every potential prime contractor's Approved/Preferred Vendor List, or something very similar, which lists the vendors and subcontractors that have been approved by the prime for quality, on-time delivery, and other factors.
Each company has its own version of the Approved/Preferred Vendor Application Form, which you can obtain from the prime's small business liaison or purchasing department. The information that you will be asked to provide will vary from prime to prime, depending on the type of work you will be doing.
This sample form is a compilation of all the information that, in our experience, primes are looking for when they want to learn about a new vendor. Although each prime has its own version of the application form, depending on its type of business, this is a good start and might help you fill out the real forms.
