Did you know the federal government purchases more than $518 billion of goods and services a year and the State of Michigan utilizes 1,100 multi-year contracts? This seminar will take you on a journey through federal purchasing and the various ways they acquire goods and services from contractors.  We will also review contracting with the State of Michigan, Wayne County and the City of Detroit.   

In addition, learn about the FREE services and continuous support the Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) has available to help your company with the contracting process and the government programs available to small businesses.

We recommend signing up for our Market Research for the Government Contractor scheduled on February 20.  This hands-on course will walk you through the systems the federal government uses to record their purchases.
