Land Your First US Government Contract With Confidence.

We partner with contractors and veterans to navigate the intimidating process of acquiring a federal contract.


Applying to be a federal contractor can be confusing and downright defeating.  You are dealing with:

The Government

Enough said. This means navigating through a sea of bureaucracy and a convoluted registration process. 

Confusing Terminology

The federal acquisition process is littered with foreign acronyms and terms making it difficult to understand the world of government contracting.

Competitive Territory

Given the volume of applicants and pricing pressures for the best bid, the whole process can feel daunting and unattainable.

You don’t need to navigate through this complicated process alone. 


At Digital Horizon Services, we clarify everything you need to know about bidding and winning your first US government contract. 

A few things you will learn...

  • How to submit an effective proposal
  • How to navigate discussions with the government
  • Understanding what the contracting officer is looking for in your application
  • How to acquire relationships that make you stand out against other vendors and contractors
  • How to represent and certify yourself/your business to show compliance with laws and regulations
  • How to have an advantage over your competitors

We Got Your Back.

We offer consulting, training and certification courses to guide you through the application and acquisition process from start to finish.
