Short Description

 

Body

Each year, the Pennsylvania Department of General Services buys more than $4 billion in goods and services from businesses. SEDA-Council of Governments’ (SEDA-COG) Procurement Technical Assistance Center is sponsoring a workshop to teach businesses how to compete for those contracts.

 

It will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Dec. 19 at the Harrisburg Regional Chamber of Commerce & CREDC, 3211 N. Front St., Harrisburg.

 

The state made significant changes to its procurement program, including the development of a small business self-certification program and small diverse business verification program.

 

Attending businesses will learn:

  • How to self-certify as a small business
  • How to navigate the Commonwealth’s E-Marketplace website to locate bid opportunities
  • The requirements to verify as a small diverse business
  • The benefits of the small and small diverse business programs 

 

It will be presented by DeShawn Lewis and Audrey Smith, Bureau of Diversity, Inclusion and Small Business Opportunities, Department of General Services. 

 

The workshop is free, but registration is required by visiting http://ow.ly/UDAN30gxH0p. For more information, contact SEDA-COG’s Kristen Moyer at Kristen@seda-cog.org or 570-524-4491.
