Clients of the Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center (GTPAC) will tell you how helpful GTPAC’s “Introduction to Government Contracting” seminar is. Hundreds and hundreds of Georgia businesses have used the “Intro” seminar as their first stepping stone into the government contracting arena.
What these businesses may forget is that GTPAC has a web page containing all of the resources featured in the seminar.
GTPAC’s “Intro” class outlines of seven steps that are essential to achieving success in the government marketplace. The seven steps are:
- Registration in Government Databases
- Creating a Marketing Plan
- Knowing the Right People
- Developing a Reference Library
- Searching for Opportunities
- Bidding and Performing
- Marketing to State and Local Governments
Internet resources supporting the seven steps are valuable to businesses who have attended GTPAC’s “Intro” seminar as well as those who have not.
By reviewing the seven steps on-line — available here — businesses can familiarize themselves with all of the things they should do to prepare themselves before pursuing government contracts. The resources listed on GTPAC’s “useful links” webpage inform newcomers to government contracting — and remind experienced government contractors — of each essential step that must be taken to achieve success in the government contracting marketplace.
