Preparing an Effective Capability Statement

$0.00/attendee | Register »

This webinar is aimed at assisting small businesses that are looking for government contracting solicitations by helping them understand what components should be included in a capability statement.

The capability statement is an important tool to help promote a company’s products and/or services and to help with outreach efforts when looking for partners or subcontracting opportunities. Capability statements are almost always required as part of a proposal when competing for federal contracts. It is also useful in seeking state and local contracting opportunities. The speakers will discuss the various options that companies may consider when putting their capability statement together.

After the webinar, attendees will understand:

  • If their business is eligible for government contracting opportunities
  • How they can make their business stand out among their competitors
  • Outreach strategies that can help locate additional contracting opportunities
  • How to connect with the SBTDC for additional help

The webinar will feature Scott Barker, GCAP Program Director at the SBTDC’s State Administrative Office and Wanda L. Cooper, Regional Center Director at the SBTDC’s Elizabeth City office.
