What Happens After You Get Set-Up As a Small Business

April 25 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm

“You don’t know what you don’t know.” First in a series of Small Business Training efforts co-sponsored by the SBDC, PTAC, and Ft. Huachuca Small Business Professional for OSBP-APG/Huachuca Division.
This workshop is designed to help small businesses start their journey in the world of Government Contracting.
Our first presenter, Sonya DeLucia-Small Business Professional for OSBP-APG/Huachuca Division, will provide a wide range of information to assist Small Businesses with understanding the public laws and regulations which govern the requirements for Small Business Programs.  These small business laws and regulations form the framework for what we do and why we do it.  Also included will be Small Business Incentive Programs, how to identify as a small business, how small business programs work, small business assessment (covers the assessment of small business firms in preparation for solicitations ans source selection), how to market to the federal government, understanding the contracting process, and information resources and FAQs.
Our next presenter, Robert Mucci- USDA Program, International Trade Specialist, and Government Contracting Specialist, will discuss how to register in SAM, data mining for potential contracts, and VA verification.  He will also provide information on the services offered by the Procurement and Technical Assistance Center (PTAC).
Our final presenter, Rob Noone, consultant, will be discussing the many resources that are available for small businesses looking to do government contracting.  Some of these resources include the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Small Business Administration (SBA), the Office of Government Contracting, and more.  He will also discuss networking through local organizations and at events.
A brief survey will be given to determine specific areas of interest to small businesses that can be presented at a later date in the series.
This class will take place on Thursday, 4/25/19, from 8am-12:30pm in the Lecture Hall at the Cochise College Downtown Center located at 2600 E. Wilcox Dr. Sierra Vista, AZ 85635.
