Hi Steve

Many thanks for your interest in the webinar we animated, and for your question.

Generally, the US government favors working with American businesses. However, there have been many cases of the US government contracting out / purchasing from foreign companies. There are a number of variables regarding who actually has the signing powers.

We would be happy to assist you with understanding which agencies your product / service could best fit and understand the contracting processes that exist within these agencies.
We provide free of charge services for UK companies and can provide more specific advice on how to contract with the US government. Please fill out the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/UKEXPORT and we will be in touch to discuss your question in more detail.

Best regards
Pierre Boesinger
