The U.S. Forest service is offering free government contracting workshops in Juneau and Ketchikan for tribal governments and small businesses interested in contract work with the federal government and the Forest Service. The workshops prepare business owners and tribal organizations to successfully bid on federal contracts.
The workshops will focus on resources for economic opportunity, government-to-government contracts and certifications for the fiscal year 2017. The HUBZone workshop helps small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities. Participants will complete a HubZone application during the workshop.
Workshops are free but registration is required due to limited seating. To register go to akptac.ecenterdirect.com/events?reset=1. For descriptions of the workshops visit ptacalaska.org.
