Government Contracting Classroom - New Online Training Resource
Monday, February 6, 2012
As a former government contractor, It can be to succeed in federal government procurement. You
face challenges every day as a business owner, an employer, and a service provider.
That’s why as the Acting Associate
Administrator of Government Contracting and Business Development at the SBA it
is a priority of mine to make sure that we provide as much information to you as
possible about our efforts to support small business government
contracting. We want to provide you, the small business owner, pertinent
and relevant information in an understandable format. That’s why today,
SBA is pleased to spotlight three new online training courses meant to help
small businesses interested in government contracting learn about the process -
the Government Contracting Classroom.
The GC Classroomis
an online training destination where small businesses can acquire the
confidence and know-how to participate in the federal contracting space.
The new online contracting series is called Government Contracting 101,
Parts 1-3. Part 1 provides an overview of the small business
contracting programs so you know what is available to you as a small business
owner. Part 2 is designed to help small firms understand how the
government buys goods and services. Part 3 is about how to
sell to the government. All three modules include a "resources and tools”
section with links, materials and more that could be useful.

These three new modules add to the
five existing, free self-paced training modules, all designed to help small
firms benefit from the more than $500 billion in federal contracts that are
awarded each year. We have big plans to add more information in the
coming months, so keep checking the GC
Classroom, and www.sba.gov, for more
updates and information.
