A new training initiative to help small firms get federal contracts is online today. The U.S. Department of Commerce and Small Business Administration are behind the new, free self-paced course in a new push to help small firms get their share of government business.
The course entitled, Recovery Act Opportunities: How to Win Federal Contracts, is part of a federal initiative announced last month by President Barack Obama. The course is designed to help small and mid-sized businesses compete for the opportunities offered by government contracting. As part of the effort, federal agency procurement officers are participating in more than 200 events nationwide over the next several weeks to help connect entrepreneurs and small businesses with contracting opportunities.
