FinCEN procures goods and services using a variety of methods outlined in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). These methods include, but are not limited to: micro-purchases, simplified acquisitions, delivery orders, contracts, blanket purchase agreements (BPAs), and Government-wide acquisition contracts (GWACs).
Acquisitions with a dollar value greater than $25,000 will be advertized on the Federal Business Opportunites (FedBizOpps) website. Vendors wishing to do business with FinCEN are encouraged to check FedBizOpps regularly for such opportunities. Prospective vendors wanting to do business with FinCEN are required to register in the Central Contractor Registry (CCR), which may be accessed at http://www.ccr.gov/. Federal contracts may not be awarded to vendors who are not registered in the CCR.
In addition, FinCEN is interested in learning of new and innovative ideas or approaches that may help the Bureau in accomplishing its mission. FinCEN is currently in the process of developing specific guidance to assist vendors interested in preparing and submitting unsolicited proposals. In the meantime, however, vendors may consult Subpart 15.6 of the FAR, which offers general information and guidance regarding unsolicited proposals. Also, FinCEN maintains a file of business information provided by potential contractors. If you would like to send materials supporting your business's qualifications, please send them to: Acquisition Management, ATTN: Becky Martin, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, PO Box 39, Vienna, VA 22183.
