If you aren’t a retired General, and want a slice of the government deficit spending- you can get a GSA schedule for your business and be pre-approved for Federal buyers. It’s a daunting amount of paperwork and challenging for most small businesses (although, not to hard for Lori Turner, wife of Congressman Mike Turner).
VOB108, a business group made up of military veteran business owners (disclosure: I’m a founding member) is hosting a FREE workshop that can help you through this process:
On Thursday, January 14, 2010, from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM, VOB108.org will sponsor a Vendor Workshop that will assist you in understanding and locating Federal Bid opportunities specific to your individual company NAICS codes. The workshop will take place at The Sinclair CC Learning Center offices located at 1900 Research Dr., in the Miami Valley Research Park, Rm #112, lower floor, use the parking lot located on the NE end of the building. Registration is Free, but REQUIRED. Register via email to: [email protected].
Registration & Seating is limited. Workshop speaker is Mr. Paul Adams, Customer Service Director, Great Lakes Region, GSA Federal Acquisition Service. The goal and scope of the workshop is to present to current GSA Schedule holders and potential schedule holders an in-depth look at the GSA structure and Bid process.
