Event Description: Where’s the Money? Federal agencies spend roughly $100 billion with small businesses on an annual basis. It was realized that that federal government contract awards to Women-Owned Small Business (WOSBs) were limited and a subsequent study listed industries in which women were underrepresented and substantially underrepresented in the award of federal contracts. To address this issue, the WOSB Contracting Rule was implemented February 4, 2011. If you are a woman owned small business and fall in one of the designated industries, you can position your company to bid on federal government set asides for WOSBs and economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSBs). We invite you to attend the Where’s the Money? Workshop to view a listing of the designated industries, learn how to position your company to bid on WOSB set-aside projects, and maneuver the www.fbogov web site to find WOSB opportunities. Jacqueline Merritt, Small Business Administration, is the presenter. This workshop will be held at the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce, 3050 Medical Center Parkway, Murfreesboro TN 37129, September 26, 2013 from 10:30 to 12:00 noon. This is a free workshop but registration is required. To register go to www.tsbdc.org or call the Tennessee Small Business Development Center at 615-898-2745. Directions:
