Government Contracting

September 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The Federal Government buys over $600 billion per year on goods and services, 5% of that spend is allocated for Small Business and 10% for Small Disadvantaged Business. This is a huge opportunity for firms, who qualify, to grow their business and become part of the challenging world of Government Contracting through Federal, State and Local contracts. But first you need to be able to find those opportunities.

In this presentation you will learn:

Where the Government dollars are spent
Where to look for opportunities
Creating a Government Marketing plan
Where and how to perform Market Research
Join Lisa Wood, Director of the Virginia Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), for this informative presentation – a “must” for those who are considering the Federal Government contracting market.

Prior becoming Virginia’s PTAC Director, Lisa served as the Statewide Director with the Connecticut and Ohio PTAC programs and was also Director for the Northwest Commission PTAC in Pennsylvania. Before joining the PTAC community, Lisa was a Procurement Specialist for Bechtel Plant Machinery, Inc. in the Greater Pittsburgh Area. In this role, Wood performed contract administration and negotiation duties. She also recommended bidders, handled issue inquiries, negotiated bids, performed cost and price analysis, and prepared comprehensive letters to justify recommended contract actions.
