MONTPELIER, VT – The Vermont Procurement Technical Assistance Center (VT PTAC) in collaboration with the Lamoille Economic Development Corporation (LEDC) invites businesses to attend Selling to the Government 101 on February 20, 2019 at the Green Mountain Tech in Hyde Park. Businesses will learn the basics to compete for contracts with the government whether it is state, local, or federal while also learning about socio-economic small business programs that may give them an advantage when competing for federal contracts. This free event includes 30 minutes of networking time.

“Government contracting can be challenging. This class provides businesses with information to navigate through the challenges and the tools and resources available to be successful,” said Joanne Spaulding, director of VT PTAC.

VT PTAC is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and the VT Department of Economic Development (DED). U.S. Sens. Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders, along with U.S. Rep. Peter Welch, have supported the PTAC program nationally, which brings Vermont more than $400,000 annually and matches a state investment.
