Caltrans' Office of Business and Economic Opportunity invites you to participate in a “Meet the Primes” event, a free partnering and networking activity with several prime contractors who have been awarded state and federally funded Caltrans construction contracts. This is a unique opportunity to gain insight about what prime contractors look for when evaluating bids from subcontractors, identify “best practices” for preparing quotes and responding to solicitations, and network with established contractors.
This event will include a dedicated question and answer session with multiple prime contractors, which is your opportunity to ask relevant questions for which answers may have proven elusive. The networking component will include face time with prime contractors, as well as other subcontractors, to afford you every opportunity to communicate the services your company offers and the value you can add to a project. We encourage you to bring line cards and/or capability statements and business cards for the networking portion of this event.
Advance registration is required, and seating is limited. For more information, please contact Kelly Schluter, Statewide Small Business Outreach Specialist, Office of Business and Economic Opportunity, Caltrans, at email@example.com or (916) 445-3512.
