US Federal Contractor Registration Helps Another Business Win Government Contracts

US Federal Contractor Registration Helps Another Business Win Government Contracts











St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) November 30, 2011

Eric Knellinger, President of US Federal Contractor Registration, announced yesterday that yet another client has succeeded in government contracting after working with the third party registration firm. Chris Weyrick was recently awarded a contract by the Department of Veterans Affairs after working with US Federal Contractor Registration to complete his CCR and ORCA registration. The $ 354,575 contract grants Weyrick the opportunity to perform on-site inscription services at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery.

Weyrick’s company Rock Crazy is a small business based in Wapello, IA and performs custom stone engraving services.

Over $ 11 billion in government contracts have been awarded since the beginning of the 2012 fiscal year on October 1st, according to the USASpending website. Over 13% of that $ 11 billion has been awarded by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Headstones, markers and niche covers are furnished by the Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration for deceased veterans worldwide. The contract awarded to Chris Weyrick is for inscription services for these headstones, markers and niche covers.

US Federal Contractor Registration completed Chris Weyrick’s CCR registration and ORCA filing in September of 2011.

The Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery is located approximately 50 miles south of Chicago in Elwood, IL. It was dedicated as the 117th national cemetery within the Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration. President Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States; he signed the law authorizing national cemeteries in the United States on July 17, 1862. Once fully developed, the cemetery will provide 400,000 burial spaces.

The Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center has estimated that nearly 20% of CCR records errors or omissions. It is extremely important that contractors’ CCR and ORCA registration are complete and accurate. Failure to complete and maintain the required government registrations can result in payment delays or disqualification for contract awards. Serious errors may even result in fines or punitive action. To win their first contract, most businesses spend an average of 20 months and $ 100,000 marketing their business to contracting agencies. If their registration is incomplete or incorrect, all that time and money will have been wasted.

To help small businesses avoid costly errors, US Federal Contractor Registration is offering a free evaluation and review of vendors’ government registration, including their CCR registration and ORCA filing. During the evaluation, a Placement Specialist will review the company’s government contractor registration to ensure it is complete, contains the correct information and is optimized to help them win government contracts.

Sharon Kleyne Discusses Dry Eye Syndrome in Women

Sharon Kleyne Discusses Dry Eye Syndrome in Women













Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 29, 2011

On June 7th, 2010, Sharon Kleyne, Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, interviewed Dr. Ilene Gipson about new education for dry eye syndrome in women.

Dr. Ilene Gipson is an ophthalmologist and dry eye syndrome researcher at Harvard Medical School. During the interview, she pointed out to Sharon Kleyne that dry eye syndrome is now the #1 reason for eye doctor visits in the United States. She explained that dry eye and eye dehydration are extremely complex. Dry eye syndrome involves the surface of the eye, tear and lipid producing glands, the skin of the eyelids, the manner in which inflammation is processed by the brain and body, hormone production, microscopic tear film components, the nervous system connection to the brain, water intake and natural water in air. Any part of this system can result in dry eye and dehydration symptoms.

Two-third of dry eye syndrome sufferers are women and a significant percentage are peri-menopausal or post-menopausal. The symptoms in women relate mostly to hormone levels and lifestyle. Dr. Gipson stresses that women do not get menopausal dry eye syndrome simply “because” they are women. Menopausal dry eye is not inevitable. Women are also more prone to autoimmune diseases, which has some of the same precipitating factors as dry eye. Women also live longer, increasing the risk of age related illness.

For natural eye health at any age, Dr. Gipson recommends dark green vegetables and adequate sleep at night. Sleeping naturally lowers the tear film pH and restores tear film moisture. It is also generally conducive to good health. She also recommends drinking adequate water.

Regarding computers, Dr. Ilene Gipson explains that deep concentration can substantially affect the eyes’ blink rate. A slowed blink rate can cause dry eye symptoms by increasing natural moisture evaporation from the tear film. Indoor conditions such as household chemicals, insulated walls and windows and forced-air heating and cooling can also cause dry eye symptoms.
