Vendors will actually start the process to prepare online registrations necessary to be recognized as a Vendor to the government. Complete overview of required registrations; Secretary of State registration of legal names/dba; Dun and Bradstreet registration; creating SAM account, required notarized letter and entity profile; SBA Profile; training provided on Positioning for Success; overview of certifications and registrations available in addition to the above (8(1), WBENC, WOSB, EDWOSB, VOSB, SDVOSB, HUBZone, DBE, TG/VO/ED, MBE, CERT, etc.).

This series was developed for the small business vendor that is new to the government marketplace. We intend to walk you through the steps to build your foundation so that when you submit a proposal or bid, you are knowledgeable in all facets of the contracting process and confident in your response.
The Foundations in Contracting series is free, however, you are expected to commit to 3 full days over the course of one month. There will be some homework along the way to verify the topics are making sense and to ensure we are presenting in a manner that works for the business participant.
