Offit Kurman Partners with GovCon Teaming Platform, govmates


For Immediate Release


imgresWashington, DC | Jan 23, 2017 Offit Kurman is pleased to announce the firm’s new strategic marketing partnership with govmates. Founded in 2016, govmates is a free teaming partner platform for government contractors. The service represents more than 50 federal agencies and has successfully made more than 7,000 matches between businesses.


With offices strategically positioned throughout the Baltimore–DC metropolitan area, Offit Kurman is equipped to serve the nation’s largest concentration of government contractors. To that end, the firm has established a Government Contracting Practice Group. The govmates platform provides even greater value to the Practice Group’s clients, many of whom seek collaborators when bidding for and fulfilling government contracts.

"I am pleased to have a strong relationship with govmates as it provides a much need connection service to the fragment government contracting marketplace.  It is a service that I can offer to my contracting clients that require connections and relationships to grow their business and fulfill their obligations," says Mike Mercurio, Principal Attorney at Offit Kurman.

The matchmakers at govmates have built a robust database of small and emerging government contractors from which to identify teaming partners. Each small business in the govmates database has provided granular data about their company—past performance, contract vehicles, capabilities, set-aside status, and so on—and is seeking new teaming arrangements with other government contractors to win new work.


For small businesses to become a govmate, it takes only a few minutes to complete a profile and become eligible for teaming introductions. For larger government contractors seeking teaming partners, govmates is an effective tool to identify potential teammates.


govmates matchmakers have extensive experience in the government contracting space and understand the importance of teaming in the current procurement environment. govmates Partner Stephanie Alexander is President of BOOST LLC, a back-office support firm for government contractors; Partner Katie Bilek is Senior Vice President at Republic Capital Access, a finance company for government contractors.
