Two upcoming workshops aim to help business owners find their way in the competitive marketplace for government contracting jobs.
Western Washington University’s Small Business Development Center and the Washington Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) are partnering to host the two workshops, which take place at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on May 6 at the Small Business Development Center, 115 Unity St., Suite 101.
The first two-and-a-half hour workshop will focus on the basics of becoming a successful government contractor, according to a news release from the university. That includes information about government classifications, certifications and market research.
The second workshop will focus on developing proposals, including strategies for prepositioning, setting up files and targeting responses.
The free workshops will be lead by Jean Hales, PTAC’s government contracting assistance specialist, and Jeanie James of Shorebird Creative, a design and media firm in Mulilteo.
Registration is required for the workshops. Register online for one or both sessions and find more information at Washington Procurement Technical Assistance Center’s website.
