It is difficult to be a supplier of a government agency. First is the bidding process which takes a lot of documents. For a basic item like bond paper and other office supplies, the prospective supplier is to submit a comprehensive company profile detailing the previous and present clients. It is also required to list down the people you know in the agency. And when you are approved to join the bidding, you have to know the other bidders otherwise you can never win. Suppliers of government agencies have a sort of syndicate among themselves and it's not easy to enter their fold. So for those planning to be a supplier of the government, just try the private companies, they are easier as customers.
