The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) recognizes that supporting entrepreneurship is a team effort! “Business Certifications: Qualifications and Benefits for your Business” is a workshop in a series of 10 specifically developed with the local entrepreneur in mind. The 10 part series addresses a variety of subjects and connects participants with experts from federal, state and local business resources.

The U.S. government is the largest customer in the world. It buys all types of products and services — in both large and small quantities — and it’s required by law to consider buying from small businesses.

In an effort to expand the number of businesses capable of participating in the governmental marketplace, this session will provide you an understanding of the requirements for government contracting and the know-how to obtain and perform federal, state, and local government contracts.

Presented by the Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), this session will teach participants the importance of business certifications, how to qualify and the benefits to the business.

Discover and Learn:

  • The different types of certifications (state/federal) for which the business might be eligible for.
  • The qualifications and benefits for each of the different certifications.
  • How to certify the business through the System of Awards Management (SAM)
  • What exactly is System Awards Management (SAM) and how it is used.
