Add the Government to Your Client List – Sign up for a FREE PTAP Seminar

Government contracting.

These two words can be intimidating, especially for small businesses that can’t dedicate a team to keep up with the ever-changing rules and regulations that guide the process.

Intimidation aside, however, the fact is government contracting offers a steady revenue stream from a reliable business partner. Obtaining a government contract can be a timely and complicated process, but typically turns out to be more than rewarding for the effort expended.

PrintAnd while a small business may not have the acumen to navigate the process itself, it can count on help – free help – from the New Hampshire Procurement and Technical Assistance Program (NH-PTAP).

NH-PTAP provides technical assistance, workshops and training events aimed at small businesses, educating them about the process. Our staff maintains a calendar of training seminars, which are held all over the state.

The government buys a huge variety of products and services and businesses considering adding it as a customer should carve out time to attend an informative seminar in Keene on July 10, Introduction to Government Contracting and Support Services.

Think of it as Government Contracting 101. Those attending will get an idea of what government contracting is, what it entails and how NH-PTAP can help. The seminar will cover the structure, scale and diversity of government contracting; how it differs from business-to-business contracting; getting through red tape and other solutions. Businesses will also get an assessment of how ready they are for government contracting and setting realistic expectations as they get started.

On July 17, the Subcontractor Training seminar is offered in Berlin, which is one event beneficial for businesses looking to get their foot in the door on government contracting, or just wants a better understanding of what it might entail. Topics covered include how to partner with a company already contracting with the government and how to do business with the prime contractors.

As the dog days of summer come on, it’s a good time for businesses to take a look at their goals and plans for the rest of the year and government contracting may well offer a great opportunity to expand and grow.
