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.


· Open For Business

· Government contracting

· Online training



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, for more updates and information.


John Shoraka is the Acting Associate Administrator for Government Contracting and Business Development.
