Getting a government contract with Industry for the Blind

I have just patented (pending) a new product for firefighters
I would like to work with a guy who would like to take my product around the world to all the bases that America owns.
Does anyone have products that the government use any advice?
I also have a local distributor who has 350 other distibution shops around the country.  He would like to buy the product.  Should I license this to him? What should I ask for a royalty?  Projected profit 12 to 18 million.

    I currently work in the Military (USAF) as a Contracting Specialist. Meaning, we do all the solicitations, negotiations, awards, and administration of government contracts. I also deploy to bases around the world periodically. Let me know if I can help you! I also have contacts in the Middle East that do work for the government.

    Jamie, I would love to talk with you or could you call or email me your number to contact?  I am not the best at typing all the things I would like to ask.  My phone # is 414-690-0256. I would like to bounce some things off of you.  Your in the right branch.  I would like to get these products into the bases with firefighters.  I saw some donations that the gov. made to a Afganistan FD. My product would be huge with all military firefighting.  Please call so I can get things lined up for the new year.  Thanks a million.  I would love to do business overseas also.

    Thanks for the info.  I will look into finding the contact in my area.  I work with a group of SBA people here in Milwaukee WI.  I hope they can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks for sharing the news about the federal government contracting small businesses. I personally believe it will help a lot of people. However, I suggest that small firms interested in doing business with the federal government must consult first with reliable contract consultants. In doing so, owners may fully understand what their contract is all about.Government Consultantsmozzarella3/25/2009 4:26 AM
