Federal, State, and Local Government procurement is the largest target market in the world. The question is usually not “Does the government buy what you are selling?”...it is more “Can you be competitive enough and relentless enough to position your business to win government contracts?”. If you think you can be competitive, then government contracting may be a good growth opportunity for your business. The “Government Contracting Overview” seminar, presented by the Florida PTAC at UCF in partnership with the Florida SBDC at UCF, is designed for established small business owners with some commercial momentum that are curious about government contracting, as well as business owners that may already be involved in government contracting. The workshop is based on a 6-step framework that helps newer contractors understand the process and helps more experienced contractors identify opportunities to ‘backfill’ best practices in their efforts. The six steps that will be discussed are: • Evaluate : Is Your Business Ready? • Register: SAM, State, County, City, Primes • Plan: Your Government Contracting Marketing Plan • Prepare: Marketing Tool Kit • Pursue: Reactive and Proactive Strategies • Achieve: Contract Join us for this great learning opportunity. You will also have the opportunity to network with other small business owners. NEW Addition – “VIRTUAL NETWORKING” Effective in June, the Florida PTAC at UCF will be adding ‘virtual networking’ to its virtual training events! Here’s how it will work: “Virtual Networking” will start 35 minutes before the training event via Zoom Chat Attendees will have the opportunity to ‘log on’ to the chat with an introduction about themselves… so be thinking of a brief Zoom Chat business card introduction! The virtual networking period will be 30 minutes (we will end 5 minutes before the event). Attendees will be able to virtually chat with ‘everyone’ or ‘privately’ for a half hour. Networking is the engine that drives small business growth and it has been glaringly absent in this new virtual reality we find ourselves in so the Florida PTAC at UCF is pleased to help you get back on track with this virtual networking feature. We look forward to networking with you at our next event!
