[Expo Webinar] Which Government Agencies Buy What I Sell?

Tuesday, May 28, 2019 10:00am to 11:00am

2019 Norcal Procurement Expo Preparatory Webinar: Part 3 of 3

Did you know that the federal government is the largest economy in the world? The state of California ranks number five, just ahead of the UK! Government agencies purchase everything from furniture to construction services to dog food (seriously!) and everything in between. If you sell it, the government probably buys it.

In this free one-hour webinar, we'll review multiple online tools to find out which government agencies buy what YOU sell. We'll cover federal, state, local (city/county), utility and even university and school district purchasing. The purpose of this webinar is to help you target agencies at the Norcal Procurement Expo.

This webinar is appropriate for all existing businesses, including those with zero government contracting experience, or those with many contracts under their belt. All businesses will learn something new!

Presented by Norcal PTAC Procurement Specialist Mary Jo Juarez. Mary Jo has extensive contracting experience as a former Contracting Officer for the Department of the Navy. In her position as the Deputy for Small Business, Mary Jo discovered her lasting passion of educating and helping small businesses to become successful in obtaining and performing in the government contracting arena.
