Norcal PTAC's Christina Jones will be hosting the following two workshops at Cal Biz Expo 2019:

#1. Which Government Agencies Buy What I Sell?

10:00 - 11:00 AM - Room 1

If you sell it, the government probably buys it.
Did you know that the federal government is the largest economy in the world? The state of California ranks number five, just ahead of the UK! Government agencies purchase everything from furniture to construction services to dog food (seriously!) and everything in between. If you sell it, the government probably buys it.

In this free one-hour workshops, we’ll review multiple online tools to find out which government agencies buy what YOU sell. We’ll cover federal, state, local (city/county), utility and even university and school district purchasing. The purpose of this webinar is to help you target agencies at the Norcal Procurement Expo.

This workshop is appropriate for all existing businesses, including those with zero government contracting experience, or those with many contracts under their belt. All businesses will learn something new!


#2. Selling to the Government

1:00 - 2:00 PM - Room 3

There are special considerations for businesses certified as small, minority-owned, woman-owned, veteran-owned and more. Learn how to make the government your next customer, or learn how to expand your current government customer base at this free workshop series hosted by the Norcal Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
