The Federal government alone will buy over $500 BILLION in products and services each year. 20%+ of all contracts MUST be awarded to small businesses! At this workshop small business owners will learn how to tap into government contracting opportunities, challenges of working with government agencies and assistance programs available to help break into the market. The Instructors will be David Jerome and Delbert Taylor with Arkansas Procurement Assistance Center.
The Arkansas Assistance Procurement Center provides free consulting assistance to small businesses to break into government contracting opportunities…Federal, state and local.
