Responding to Federal Government Opportunities - Marquette, MI

March 20, 2019, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm (Check-in is 8:30 am - 9:00 am)

  • Is your business looking to expand?
  • Have you considered selling to the government?
  • Are you currently selling to the government but only to one or two agencies?
  • Are you missing an opportunity to diversify your customer base?

The federal government market is worth nearly $100 billion in sales to small businesses each year, but selling to the government is very different than selling to the commercial sector.

Once you’ve found a government opportunity you might want to bid on….What’s next? What factors should you consider before bidding? How does the government evaluate offers? Where do you go for help? This class will help you find the answers to these questions and more. Topics covered are: Accepting Government Charge Cards; Government Purchase Orders; DLA Internet Bid Board System (DIBBS); Uniform Contract Format Review; Understanding a Solicitation; Responding to a Request for Proposal (RFP).

The workshop will be held at Michigan Works!, 1498 O’Dovero Drive, Marquette, MI. Questions: contact Don Makowski, or (906) 789-0558, ext. 1311.
