Selling to the Commonwealth Seminar – You’ve taken the time to start and build your business!

Selling to the Commonwealth Seminar
You’ve taken the time to start your business!
You’re taking the time to build your business!!
But are you taking the time to capitalize on the largest single purchaser of products and services in the Commonwealth?
Last year, the Commonwealth of Virginia spent more than $6 Billion on products and services. Products and services that you probably sell. For every $100 the Commonwealth spent on products and services, $37, went to a SWaM vendor. Are you getting your share???
At this free seminar, you will learn:
How to investigate how much the Commonwealth spends on the products and services you offer!
Which state agencies purchase the goods and services you offer and how much they’re paying for these items?
And much more!
In addition, there will be a presentation on the SWaM program. SWaM is a set-aside program for Small business owners, Women business owners, and Minority business owners. State buyers are strongly encouraged to purchase from SWaM certified firms. If you’re NOT SWaM certified, come see what your business is missing out on!
On the Agenda:
 Navigating Virginia’s eProcurement Portal (eVA)
 The Value of SWaM / Micro Business Certification
Date: Monday, May 22, 2017
