Government Contracting

The Federal Government has strict guidelines regulating its purchase of goods and services. Small businesses must meet certain qualifications, and government contracting officials use standardized procedures. As a small business owner seeking to sell to the government, you first have to understand how the contracting process works, determine whether your business qualifies, and decide whether government contracting is right for you. The SBA set up its Government Contracting Program to help both contracting officials as well as small business owners looking to do business with the government.

To learn more about the contracting process, the SBA has several free, online courses geared towards competing for and winning government contracts. You can find that page here.

For more information about how the SBA provides help with government contracting, visit the Office of Government Contracting and the Office of Government Contracting and Business Development.
