The Small Business Center at Haywood Community College will hold a free seminar “Doing Business with the Government” on Tuesday, October 27, 9 –11 am at HCC’s Regional High Technology Center Auditorium.

Can your small business make money through government contracting? This seminar will provide information about the internet-based procurement systems launched by the Federal and North Carolina Governments.

Attendees will follow the procurement process, from the registration and certification requirements to finding out what and where the government is buying. Learn about contract preference programs, who they benefit, and how they work. Get contacts and resources for further advice and assistance should you decide to pursue government business. This seminar will de-mystify government procurement so you can make an informed decision on whether to enter this important market.

This seminar will feature representatives of the Small Business Administration and the Small Business Technology Development Center.
