SBA Hosts 8(a) Government Contracting Workshop - July 30th in Johnston

Government Contracting

Did you know the federal government is the largest buyer of goods and services, spending billions of dollars every year?  The federal government’s goal is to award at least five percent of all federal contracting dollars to small disadvantaged businesses each year

The U.S. Small Business Administration will be hosting a workshop on the 8(a) Business Development Program which helps small disadvantaged businesses compete in the federal market place.  You will learn about the benefits of being 8(a) certified, program eligibility requirements, and the wide-range of assistance to eligible small businesses.

The workshop will include representatives from SBA, the Targeted Small Business program (TSB), CIRAS/Iowa Procurement Technical Assistance Center, SCORE, America’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and  the Women’s Business Center (WBC).
