ASU SBTDC, other organizations to present Government Contracting workshop March 5


JONESBORO, Ark. — The Arkansas State University Small Business and Technology Development Center (SBTDC), Arkansas Procurement Assistance Center (APAC) along with the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Jonesboro Association will present  “Get Started with Government Contracting” seminar, Tuesday, March 5, from 1-4 p.m. in Room 201 at the ASU Delta Center for Economic Development, 319 University Loop Circle.

Federal, state and local government agencies contract with thousands of small businesses every year and buy everything from paper clips to space ships, from landscaping services to computer software, and more.  The federal government alone will buy over $6 billion in products and services each year.  Over 20 percent of all contracts must be awarded to small businesses. 

At this workshop, small business owners will learn how to tap into government contracting opportunities and challenges of working with government agencies and assistance programs available to help break into the market.  The instructors will be David Jerome and Delbert Taylor with Arkansas Procurement Assistance Center.

The Arkansas Procurement Assistance Center provides free consulting assistance to small businesses to break into government contracting opportunities—federal, state and local.  Attendees will learn about the assistance available from APAC as well as how to tap into this market by working with contracting professionals.

There is no charge for the workshop, but due to limited seating, attendees must pre-register.    For more information or to register, contact the ASU Small Business and Technology Development Center at (870) 972-3517, e-mail asusbtdc@astate.edu, register online at http://asbtdc.ualr.edu/training/jonesboro.asp or “fan” the ASU SBTDC on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/asu.sbtdc.
