Government Contracting
Thursday, January 25, 2024, 11 am-12 pm est | Online

Let the Small Business Administration (SBA), help you get “procurement-ready” to market your firm’s products and services to the Federal Government through our Resource Partners Network. Federal Government Contracting can represent a very profitable market for your business — but it can also be extremely complex to get started and thrive.

Working for the Government can provide a lucrative opportunity for companies that can provide the needed products and services. In addition, the government has preferred treatment for specially qualified contractors.

It also encourages its major contractors to provide small companies with opportunities to become subcontractors with the resulting advantages. 

However, working for the government requires adherence to specific rules involving registration and certification. The government also has its own set of rules for marketing and pricing. 

Presented by Nadine Boone; Assistant District Director of Business Development and Lisa Gonzalez Welch; Economic Development Specialist of the Massachusetts District Office of the SBA.
