About this Event

This is a live webinar. Closer to the start date, watch for an email with instructions on how to join. CLC is committed to the safety and security of online instruction and is constantly adapting to offer the best experience for all users. Instructor will be using a secure video conferencing platform.

According to the Small Business Administration, the federal government buys nearly $1 billion worth of goods and services from small businesses each year! U.S. federal government contracts represent a tremendous sales and revenue opportunity for small businesses because the U.S. Government is the world’s largest customer, buys all types of products and services in both large and small quantities and is required by law to provide opportunities for small businesses. Selling to the government requires a very different approach than selling to the private sector. Attend one or more classes to learn how to compete in the government-contracting marketplace!

GOVERNMENT CONTRACTING 101 - September 17, 2020

Learn the basics of government contracting to compete in the government-contracting marketplace. Topics include PTAC’s free bid lead/bid matching system, vendor registration at all governmental levels (SAM, IPG, etc.), small business certifications and sub-contracting opportunities.

NEW! GSA SCHEDULES - REMOVING THE MYSTERY - October 15, 2020

GSA Schedules (General Services Administration) are contracting vehicles that allow contractors to offer commercial products and services to the government at discount pricing. There is a single contract with subcategories to choose form, each with a different industry focus. Learn how to determine which subcategory may be best for you, understand how to complete the proposal submission process and win a contract. You may also discover that GSA schedules are not a good fit for your company. In any case you will gain knowledge and skills that enable you to make practical decisions about this federal contract method.
