The Government Contracting SBDC is sponsoring this proactive procurement event for our small business clients and others in the Metroplex who would like to do business with key local agencies.
We plan a series of these events over the next year. The initial event, to be held at the Bill J. Priest Institute, 1402 Corinth Street, Dallas, TX 75215, Room 1530, from 1-4 PM on Wednesday, February 26, 2014, will provide an opportunity for your business to meet face-to-face with key purchasing representatives of the Cities of Dallas, Garland, Irving, Plano, and Richardson. Each city will be given an opportunity to share information about its major procurement procedures, upcoming projects, and any other desired information. The Government Contracting SBDC will do a brief introduction as to the free services we can offer your business in helping connect with these cities and other government agencies.
However, the key part of the event will be a chance for your business to personally interact with the representatives of each city and share about your capabilities which may fit in with their needs. Too many past procurement events are too much talk and too little opportunity to actually meet buyers and other key agency employees. Our intent is to radically change this, affording you plenty of opportunity for personal one-on-one time with the people who make the decisions. Please come and share with us in this unique opportunity, which we believe will result in many productive business opportunities with organizations you may have never considered before.
