About this EventAdd to calendar
Who is the world's largest customer? Our government. The federal government alone typically purchases $400+ BILLION in goods and services — from light bulbs to PR, and from landscaping services to food products. Last year, over $100 billion was awarded to small businesses.
With the new Infrastructure Bill that recently passed, the administration announced increasing the share of contracts going to small, disadvantaged businesses by 50 percent by 2025. For Fiscal Year 2022, that translates into spending 11 percent of governmentwide procurement dollars on small, disadvantaged businesses.
The opportunity is tremendous. However, new small businesses entering government contracting face significant time-consuming and costly challenges. The UGA Small Business Development Center at Kennesaw State is hosting How to Get Started in Government Contracting: Certification, Contracting and Teaming workshop on Wednesday, February 8; 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. If you are considering government contracting or if your business ready for the shift to B2G, this workshop is for you. Learn how to gain a strategic foothold in public sector procurement and how certifications can help. Attend this introductory program to understand the typical procurement process and how you can more efficiently gain a foothold in federal contracting.
