Selling to the Government: Sources Sought Opportunities

Wednesday, November 6, 2019 10:00am to 12:00pm

Knowing how to answer a government’s “Sources Sought” or Request for Information (RFIs) is the perfect opportunity to market your business capabilities and distinguish yourself in a positive way from your competitors in the government marketplace.

Sources Sought and RFIs are the federal government’s way to conduct market research and identify capable small business sources for a small business set-aside or other type of set-aside contracts. Answering the call for Sources Sought increases the availability of these special contracts and puts your business a few steps closer to winning these government bids.

Join this workshop to learn:

  • The purpose of Sources Sought/RFI
  • Appropriate market research before responding
  • How to determine if you are a “capable source”
  • How to develop a Capability Statement
  • How to market your business in your response
