SBA Upcoming Workshops


Small Business Federal Certification Programs


The U.S. government is the largest single purchaser of goods and services in the world, awarding approximately $500 billion in contracts every year.


Before you can begin doing business with the government your business must obtain the proper certifications. Federal, state and local governments offer businesses opportunities to sell billions of dollars worth of products and services. Many government agencies require that some percentage of the procurements be set aside for small businesses. Certifying your business can definitely help you successfully compete for government contracts.  For more information, attend one of our two monthly SBA Certification Classes.
