Businesses can get key insights on how to do business with the Federal Bureau of Prisons at a free workshop sponsored by SEDA-Council of Governments’ Procurement Technical Assistance Program.
The Doing Business with the Federal Bureau of Prisons workshop will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. April 17 at the Union County Government Center, 155 N. 15th St., Lewisburg.
Attendees will find out how to locate government-wide Requests for Quotations (RFQs) online, and how federal procurement staff currently is doing business.
Businesses that sell the following supplies and services are encouraged to register: Food, beverage, building, recreation equipment, medical, electrical, computers and related equipment, education, cleaning, and paper.
Dries Orchards in Sunbury took advantage of this business opportunity, and because of contracts SEDA-COG helped them secure, Dries Orchards sold almost $48,000 worth of produce to the U.S. Penitentiary in Lewisburg and over $25,000 worth of produce to the Federal Correctional Complex in Allenwood last year.
Contracting officers from the Federal Correctional Complex in Allenwood and the U.S. Penitentiary in Lewisburg will present the information.
