Status & Details
22 May 2020
In January of 2020 TSM officially began its adventure into the government services space and has been active developing new venture capabilities to pursue, capture, and execute on government contracts as a prime or subcontractor in the various markets segments TSM serves.
TSM’s US Defense Logistics Agency commercial and government entity (CAGE) code is 8FQV5 (activated 12/19). While TSM has just recently registered as government contractor, we have been in operation since 2006 and Our D-U-N-S number is 012488963 (activated 5/10).
TSM is a Federal Executive Board-certified (SADBOC Government Contracting Foundations Program, 5/20) small business committed to working with new partners around the country from our new location in historically economically-underutilized rural Pine County, MN. TSM is accustomed to working with partners across the country or across oceans. TSM was an early adopter to the virtual office model in 2008, which enabled expat work in Switzerland and the Netherlands from 2010 to 2018 and continues to provide the flexibility.
Formal VA, SBA, and DoD verification / certifications / reinvestigations for SDVOSB, HUBZone, and security clearances are pending. TSM is working directly with the Small Business Administration (SBA), Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), and the Federal Executive Board, and with state-level small business outreach teams in Minnesota to negotiate the various certification and training hurdles on our path forward. TSM anticipates final verification with VA Verify program later this year and HUBZone verification next year. The ultimate level and timing of security clearances is not certain at this time given the peculiarities of the the federal process and the national industrial security policy transformation currently underway.
As a prospective security-cleared SDVOSB and HUBZone set-aside eligible contracting partner, we are enthusiastic about networking with large and small businesses near and far to explore strategic and developmental partnerships so to eventually pursue, capture, and execute on government contracts or commercial subcontracts of mutual business interest.
Because some of our federal commercial entity registration details are for official use only, contracting officers and potential commercial teaming partners are invited to also download our service capabilities statement here and to inquire directly with any questions.
