The Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) of the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce is offering a free webinar, How to Sell Your Goods and Services to the Federal Government, on Friday, February 10 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Dustin Frigy, Director of the PTAC for the Regional Chamber says this federal government contracting webinar just may provide the tools you need to grow your business.

"The federal government market presents a wealth of opportunity," said Frigy. "Hundreds of billions of dollars are spent each year by federal government departments, which provides a unique opportunity for businesses of all sizes. That's why this webinar is so important. It provides the information needed to successfully navigate the government maze and reveals exactly what it take to be a contractor. This hour-long webinar could make a difference for your business in 2012."

A recent PTAC contracting seminar participant Alison Shively, President of Shively Diversified Management Services, says she learned many things that will help her business this year.

"I am having my employees participate in the webinar, because I learned so much at the seminar and I want to leverage that knowledge to get government contracts," said Shively. "As a small business owner, I was impressed with how well the PTAC staff broke down the information and made it so easy to understand. I would encourage any business owner interested in government contracting to participate. It will definitely make a difference."

Participants will learn about the services and support the Regional Chamber PTAC has available to help with the contracting process. Those encouraged to attend include management and employees who currently supports or have an interest in facilitating government contracting within their companies.

The webinar focuses on the following topics: Eligibility Requirements, Types of Solicitations, Marketing Strategies, Laws and Regulations, How to Request a Post Submission Debriefing, Freedom of Information Act and How to Obtain Bid Information.
