About This Event

Government agencies buy a wide variety of goods and services each year. Each agency has a responsibility for procuring its own goods and services in support of the agency's mission. Government contracting can be a critical tool for growing a small business. This is an excellent opportunity for small businesses to hear directly from procurement officers from various local, state, federal, and commercial organizations regarding opportunities available for small, minority, women and veteran-owned businesses. Conversely, procurement officials can learn more about the diverse small business resources available to meet their procurement needs.

Government and corporate buyers including service providers will have an exhibit set up where small business owners can have one-on-one interactions, submit their capability statements, and learn about what those organizations are currently buying, what is in their pipeline, and how small businesses can prepare themselves to meet those needs. Small businesses interested in doing business with government agencies are encouraged to attend this procurement fair.
