  • Government Contract Workshop for Small Business
    12/12/14 09:00 AM - 12/12/14 12:00 PM

    This hands-on workshop is the next step for business owners who want to expand their marketing efforts beyond their current customer base.

    The Defense Procurement Technical Assistance Center will help your firm market to government agencies, such as DoD, EPA, DOE, FAA, State of New Jersey, schools, post offices, local municipalities, as well as large businesses such as IBM, Lockheed and the casinos.  How to get in the door! This course will teach you about tools such as Small Disadvantaged Business/8a, Hubzone, Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business, or Minority/Women certifications that will give your business a marketing edge. You will be given step by step instructions as to how to complete the Central Contractor Registration, the only place to register to get contracts with the Government and to showcase your services to large corporations. You have to be in it to win it! Additionally, we will review the government payment system “Wide Area Work Flow”, so you can get paid within a week of delivery.

    You will receive a listing of small business specialists at various agencies and large businesses so you can avoid the “cold call”, since these individuals are tasked to assist you.  The Center will bid match you with buyers free of charge so that you will discover who is buying your goods or services, and we will assist in the review of bidding opportunities. If you know what you sell and how much, we can fill in the blanks for you with free follow-up counseling sessions, CCR and certification pod casts so that you can have instruction at home at your convenience.
