Do you want to do business with the federal government? Did you know obtaining a federal certification can increase your chances of being awarded a federal government contract? Do you wonder whether your company would be eligible, and if so what the process is to apply for 8a certification? Agencies spend over $600 billion dollars in federal procurement annually and have a 23% small business goal. The SBDC’s 8(a) Certification workshop provides information on how small businesses can better position themselves to compete more effectively in the federal marketplace. Our subject matter expert on the 8(a) certification process will review this business development program and discuss the many federal set-aside opportunities available. The workshop will provide information on the following: • Eligibility requirements • Benefits of the program • Application process • After approval, business development assistance available • Overview on how set-aside contracts are awarded
