How to Do Business with the Federal Government
The SBA launches a series of exclusive WOSB Workshops to provide women business owners with increased opportunities to compete for and win federal contracts, and ultimately helping them retain more jobs.
The Small Business Act authorizes contracting officers to specifically set-aside, certain requirements for competition solely among women owned small businesses (WOSBs) or economically disadvantaged women-owned small business (EDWOSBs). These procurement mechanisms are meant to increase Federal contracting opportunities for WOSBs and to assist agencies in achieving their women owned small business goals.
Topics to be covered:
• Know the Rules
• How to register for small business certifications
• Finding opportunities
• Marketing Your Firm
• Geeting Paid
• How to seek additional assistance
Please RSVP and for more information, send an email to the IWTT event coordinator.
