Are you a WBE seeking to do business within the public-sector? Government agencies and their prime corporate contractors are federally mandated to meet a 5% (of $540 billion) spending goal with women-owned small businesses (WOSB). In October 2010, the law was strengthened to allow contracting officers to set-aside contracts where only WOSBs can compete.
At this 3-hour session, established WBEs will hear from noted government contracting expert and author, Gloria Larkin, about the benefits of the SBA Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) contracting program, and learn how to:
•Leverage the WOSB program to improve, elevate and enhance their companys perceived benefits to contracting officers and corporate buyers;
•Locate viable direct and indirect contract opportunities; and,
•Maximize their competitive position and business by effectively connecting and getting to the decision maker, and successfully building the relationship.
We hope you will join us for this informative and impactful session. For more information on facilitator Gloria Larkin, please visit www.TargetGov.com.
All certified WBEs headquartered in our around these locations will receive additional information via email on each event 3-4 weeks prior to set date with details on registering.
