Event description
Ensure Your Veteran-Owned Business Meets the Requirements for Federal Contracts

About this Event

Get ready for our next Supplier Diversity Briefing on meeting the requirements for fulfilling federal contracts. Many government agencies and commercial organizations seek to include veteran-owned businesses as suppliers, contractors and service providers. This event is designed to provide you with the knowledge needed to participate in commercial and government contracting programs as a certified veteran-owned business. If your business is certified as woman- or minority-owned, this applies to you as well.

Whether you're already winning contract bids with governmental agencies or you're contemplating completing a certification - this event is for you. Ensure your business meets the requirements of federal agencies in order to utilize contracting to grow through supplier diversity programs.
