8(a) Business Development Program and System for Awards Management Webinar
July 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
The federal government’s goal is to award at least five percent of all federal contracting dollars to 8(a) certified small businesses each year.
To help provide a level playing field for small businesses owned by socially and economically disadvantaged people, the government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the 8(a) Business Development program.
At this workshop, participants will learn:
- What the benefits are to being an 8(a) certified firm
- If they qualify for the 8(a) program
- About the 8(a) application process
This workshop is for those who want to take advantage of federal contracting opportunities with a service or product to sell. Businesses should be in operation at least two years.
Moreover, UTRGV Rio South Texas Regional Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) will present information on their “no cost” services.
