business with the Government
The Idaho Transportation Department from Boise is sponsoring workshops in Grangeville and Orofino to provide an introduction and overview on doing procurement business with the government. The workshop is a free half-day primer on how it all works, how to find what’s out there, and knowing who can help you.
The workshops will be held at the following locations:
Orofino, ID — Tuesday, April 14th, 8 am-Noon - Best Western Lodge at Rivers Edge, 615 Main Street
Grangeville, ID — Wednesday, April 15th, 8 am-Noon - Super 8 Grangeville, 801 S.W. 1st Street
There will be speakers from the Idaho Department of Transportation, the US Small Business Administration, the Idaho Department of Commerce, and the US Forest Service.
Do you provide transportation-related services in construction or consulting? You’ll get an overview on bidding on ITD highway construction projects and submitting proposals for ITD professional agreements. You’ll also hear about the USDOT’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program. This program is designed to foster equal opportunity for minority, female and disadvantaged business owners on federal-aid transportation projects. Learn how to become certified as a DBE, and what kind of valuable benefits they can enjoy through DBE Supportive Services.
Can you provide other kinds of goods and services to state and federal government? You’ll learn from the U.S. Small Business Administration about its 8(a) and HUBZone Programs, as well as the crucial step of signing up on the Central Contractor Registration (CCR).
Find out about the many other services and programs that are available to you through the Idaho Business Network, dedicated to helping Idaho businesses win federal contracts. The US Forest Service will discuss its procurement opportunities, as well.
