If you are new to the government contracting market, an excellent way to get your foot in the door is to partner with another company who has experience working with the federal government. Working as a sub-contractor is a good way to obtain government contracting experience. Many government contracts require the prime contractor to have a sub-contracting plan which sets small business subcontracting goals for each of the categories of small business.
For many businesses, being a subcontractor should be the primary goal, rather than becoming a "prime". Want to learn how to do business with large government prime contractors? If so, you will want to attend this seminar. There will be plenty of useful information for those in the construction field, manufacturers, service providers and suppliers too.
Becoming a subcontractor can not only be rewarding but less complicated than competing for a government prime contract. Many prime contractors continually seek good small business suppliers to meet their needs and satisfy the requirements of their government subcontracting plans. You may have just what they are looking for and should consider attending this seminar.
