Event description
Attend these workshops to understand federal contracting rules and expectations and learn how to compete in the government-contracting marketplace!
According to the Small Business Administration, the federal government buys nearly $100 billion worth of goods and services from small businesses each year! U.S. federal government contracts represent a tremendous sales and revenue opportunity for small businesses because the U.S. Government is the world’s largest customer, buys all types of products and services in both large and small quantities and is required by law to provide opportunities for small businesses. Selling to the government requires a very different approach than selling to the private sector. Attend one or more classes to learn how to compete in the government-contracting marketplace!
All sessions held at College of Lake County, Southlake Campus, Vernon Hills, Room TBA, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Series classes can be taken individually for $20 per session. Series Cost: $40 (A $20 Savings!)

THE CERTIFICATION PROCESS - March 12, 2020There are several government agencies at the federal, state and local levels offering small business certification, but navigating the alphabet soup of government certifications is confusing! Learn which small business certification is the best one for you!
BID TO WIN GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS - April 9, 2020Are you interested in winning a government contract, but aren’t sure how to write a good proposal to respond to a bid?
