GSA site will speed service to small business

Dry cleaners, restaurants and trucking companies will be among the first businesses to be offered one-stop federal and state registration and licensing via a new General Services Administration Web site.

The portal, dubbed the National Business Registry, is now a proof-of-concept development but will go operational next year if GSA can secure additional funding, according to Barry West, GSA's agency expert for information assurance. It will be accessible through several state and federal Web sites, including FirstGov.

Developed using a $100,000 grant from FirstGov, the National Business Registry site will let small businesses obtain paperwork such as tax identification and employer numbers, trademarks and state licenses, West said.
