How to do Business with the State of California
Tue, March 21, 2017, 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM PDT
Please join us for this fast-paced seminar, focusing on educating and informing small business owners on how to: effectively do business with the State of California, navigate the State's Cal eProcure system, complete Small Business and Veteran Enterprise certifications, as well as connect with various resources and opportunities in the Central California region.
Mr. Wayne Gross with the California Department of General Services will make an informative and engaging presentation on key aspects of the State's procurement process, who the decisionmakers are, and how you can best position your firm to do business with State government.
The Monterey Bay Procurement Technical Assistance Center (MBPTAC) works closely with small businesses throughout Central California to help them compete for contracts in the government marketplace. In addition to providing pre and post award assistance, we offer a no cost bid-matching service that aligns bid opportunities from cities, counties, educational institutions, states, and most federal agencies across the United States with the services and products offered by the small business community. MBPTAC staff will be on hand to highlight these no cost services, as well as answer specific questions.
Attendees will also have an opportunity to network with contractors, small business development center, and agency representatives in the greater Visalia area.
Time permitting, there will be an open question and answer session.
We look forward to seeing you there.
