The U.S. Small Business Administration launched a new online training course to help strengthen access to contracting opportunities for small businesses.
The course, named “Recovery Act Opportunities: How to Win Federal Contracts” is part of a federal government-wide initiative led by SBA and the Department of Commerce. It uses both audio and script to provide information about the federal marketplace, contract rules and, most importantly, how to sell to the government and where to find contract and Recovery Act opportunities.
In order to simplify its use, the course is indexed by subject matter and includes direct links to external contracting resources.
It is available 24/7 on SBA’s website at www.sba.gov or directly at www.sba.gov/fedcontractingtraining.
Over the next weeks, procurement officers are participating in more than 200 events even to connect small businesses with contracting opportunities.
