Forum to Help Businesses Secure Govt. Contracts

Louisville area small business owners are being invited to participate in a forum Monday on how to secure government contracts.

The event will include representatives from the Small Business Administration, local, state and federal governments and the Professional Services Council, the trade organization for government contractors.The council's Colleen Preston says all will be available to provide information about what can seem to be a daunting process of contracting with a government agency."We'll be going through and explaining how it is you go about selling to the government, what the marketplace is, what the opportunities are, particularly for small busineses," Preston said.She says the federal government alone spends more than $400 billion on contracting services each year.The forum will be held from 8:00am-1:00pm at the Louisville Marriott Downtown.  It's organized by the office of Congressman John Yarmuth.
