In support of the White House Initiative on Small Business Contracting, the Department of Agriculture (USDA) and North Carolina Central University will jointly host a daylong series of educational workshops and networking sessions focusing on doing business with USDA and other federal agencies.
The workshops and panel discussions will be led by program and small business procurement officials from USDA and other federal agencies. Topics include acquisition needs and opportunities, procurement methods, subcontracting opportunities, business development resources, and more.
One workshop is specifically focused on contracting opportunities in rural America. This is part of a continuing effort by the USDA to enhance the competitive posture of rural small businesses and small farmer-owned cooperatives.
There will also be opportunities to meet one-on-one with USDA small business contracting specialists.
