FLINT — The Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) of the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce presents “Secrets to Successful Government Contracting”, a three-part summer series which continues July 22 from 8:30-11:30 a.m. at the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce in the Mott Board Room. It concludes Aug. 26.
The seminars will be conducted by Todd Olson, Program Director of the Northwest Michigan PTAC office in Traverse City. Olson will focus on the critical areas businesses need to understand to position themselves for successful government contracting.
During the July seminar, “Understanding Federal Solicitation”, Olson will provide businesses with everything they need to effectively respond to federal solicitations, including Department of Defense solicitations. Participants will gain understanding of the differentiation between a Request for Quotation (RFQ), Invitation for Bids (IFB) and a Request for Proposal (RFP), as well as the best online resources. In August, participants will learn the keys to “Responding to the RFP.”
Businesses interested in breaking into government contracting or looking to improve their approach are encouraged to attend. Attendees also will learn about the services and support the Regional Chamber PTAC has available to help with the contracting process.
The cost for each class is $15 or registration for the entire series is $30. The Regional Chamber is located at 519 S. Saginaw St. in downtown Flint.
