Posted: Monday, 01 June 2015

DOTHAN - Troy University's Small Business Development Center and the Alabama Procurement Technical Assistance Center will offer a free seminar to small businesses wanting to do business with the federal government.

"Introduction to Government Contracting" will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Thursday, June 11, in room 206 Adams Hall on TROY's Dothan Campus.

Each federal agency has a small business program and many have a small business specialist who serves as a liaison between the agency and the small businesses that want to sell to them, said Judy Callin, a senior consultant with the TROY SBDC.

Topics covered in the seminar will be: how to research the government market; how to register as a government contractor; special programs and certifications in government contracting; and, how to market your products and services to the government.
