Small Business Procurement

If you are selling it, the U.S. Government and UGA are buying it.

Join us for one, or both programs to expand your market by doing business with the federal government and/or with the University of Georgia.

Federal Contracting & Small Business Certifications

Each year, the federal government typically purchases $400+ BILLION in goods and services — from light bulbs to PR, and from landscaping services to food products. Last year, almost $100 billion was awarded to small businesses. So, the opportunity here is tremendous. However, new small business entrants to federal contracting face significant time-consuming and costly challenges.

Attend this introductory program to understand the typical procurement process and how you can more efficiently gain a foothold in federal contracting. Also, learn about related small business certifications and how to leverage them. Registration is required.

COST: $39.00

HOURS: 1.5

In collaboration with the UGA SBDC Office of Minority Business Development.
