Would you like to do business with the government? There are several opportunities for businesses to sell goods and services to local, state, and federal government agencies. Congressman Adam Smith invited constituents to attend his Government Procurement Workshop to learn how to bid on government contracts and meet with government agencies.

During this event, we covered the essentials of government contracting and hosted a panel of government agencies who will provide an update on contracting opportunities. Attendees also had the chance to network with government agencies during a tabling session at which time the agencies will distribute resources for business owners.
