If you are interested doing business with the federal government’s “landlord,” you should make plans to attend a special conference scheduled to be held in Atlanta on Aug. 31, 2010.
The conference is being held by the Public Buildings Service (PBS), a unit of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). The Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center (GTPAC) is co-hosting the event with GSA.
The purpose of the Aug. 31st conference is to acquaint the small business community with upcoming contract opportunities in the areas of design and construction; realty services; building services/energy; and GSA Schedules as used by the Public Buildings Service (PBS).
Not all GSA and PBS purchasing will be discussed at the conference. Instead, attendance at this event will be beneficial primarily to companies associated with NAICS codes 236220, 238160, 238210, 238220, 238290, 238990, 531110, 531120, 531210, 531320, 541191, 541310, 541320, 541330, 561710, 561720, 561730, 562111, 561210, 562910, and 562219.
