Event Alert: Free Webinar Tomorrow on Winning Government Contracts

From our friends at  American Express OPEN and WIPP:

Small businesses received $98 billion in government contracting opportunities in 2010. Despite this enticing number, many small businesses are staying on the sidelines and missing their fair share. The federal government has a benchmark goal of awarding 23 percent of spending to small businesses and an additional 5 percent to women-owned small businesses.

To help business owners claim their full share, American Express OPEN and Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP) are offering a free, one hour tutorial on Wednesday, August 17th. This session will provide top level guidance on what business owners should be doing after they complete their registration on the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) – the primary vendor database for the federal government.

Topics discussed in this webinar include:

  • A review of the CCR record
  • SBA profile
  • The Small Business Dynamic Search Process
  • An overview of how the federal government buys products and services.

This educational webinar is part of the Give Me 5 program, a national program created by American Express OPEN and WIPP to help women business owners get a leg up on selling to the world’s largest customer; the U.S. government. The Give Me 5 program has educated more than 400,000 business owners and helped more than 28,000 register on the CCR.

    2. If you missed this, you can contact the PTAC (Procurement Technical Assistance Center) in your state. These are funded by federal grants, primarily from the Department of Defense, and are staffed mainly by people who retired from working as procurement officers in the government. I’ve used them before and recommended them to clients. I highly, highly recommend them. And they are free!
