Introduction to Government Contracting
The United States government is the single largest buyer of goods and services worldwide. Small businesses represent over 99% of all businesses in the nation. The USG is committed to making contracts available for small business competition. But, getting a contract is more than a notion when the yearly marketplace has a value of over $500 billion! Join Althea A. Harris from the SBA South Florida District Office as she offers an introduction to the federal marketplace and your first steps to determining if it's the market for you. After this session, you will know the first steps to access the marketplace, how to find out which federal agencies buy what products and services, and how to locate new contracting opportunities.
