[Eureka] Contracting with California State Government

February 19 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

Free

Selling your goods and services to the State government holds great potential for your business. Last year the State of California spent more than $10 billion on goods and services, including more than $3 billion with small businesses. State agencies buy everything from construction, HR and lab services to coffee beans and dog food. They even buy goats for grazing! Understand the basics of State government contracting and learn how to get certified as a Small Business or Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (SB/DVBE) for a competitive advantage. Stay for the second part and get into the thick of it with concrete steps for government contracting success once your business is registered and certified. Learn to identify opportunities that fit your business and how to find, bid on, and win state contracts. Understand requirements, compliance, and regulations, and how to market your business successfully to state agencies. Hosted by Norcal PTAC and Caltrans. Sponsored and presented by CA Dept of General Services.
