SBDC Workshop to Focus on Matchmaking with Federal Contracting Officers

October 18, 2016

Businesses involved in government contracting, or those thinking selling to the government might be a good market, may want to attend a workshop sponsored by the Wyoming Entrepreneur Small Business Development Center (SBDC).

“Matchmaking with Federal Contracting Officers” is scheduled Wednesday, Nov. 16, from 2-4:30 p.m. at the Laramie County Public Library, 2200 Pioneer Ave., in Cheyenne. Contracting officers from six different federal agencies will be on hand to discuss their processes to purchase products and services from small businesses.

The SBDC is a partnership among the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming Business Council and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBDC focuses on educating small-business owners and potential owners on how to successfully start and operate small businesses. The SBDC’s main office is located at UW.

At this event, small-business owners will have the opportunity to meet one on one with representatives from six federal agencies and obtain tips about how their business can best market to the federal government. Small businesses also will learn about the free assistance available from the Wyoming Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) to help Wyoming businesses obtain government contracts; and about the U.S. SBA’s contracting and business development programs.

Invited agencies include the Bureau of Land Management, F.E. Warren Air Force Base, General Services Administration, the U.S. Forest Service, Western Area Power Administration and SBA.

“This is a good opportunity for Wyoming small businesses to meet one on one with the folks who actually do the purchasing for the federal government in this region,” says Cindy Unger, business adviser for the Wyoming Entrepreneur SBDC.
