Veterans Administration CVE Why? How?
Thursday, Dec. 2
Small businesses owned and managed by veterans and service-disabled veterans have a special status among small businesses that can be very beneficial, especially when contracting with the Department of Veterans Affairs. VA has a stringent, but reasonably fair, process for verifying companies’ qualifications as SDVOSB or VOSB. This webinar explains when the verification is and is not required, how to become verified, and common pitfalls in the verification process.

NOTE: If you qualify, now is the time to get verified. The verification program will be turned over to SBA  in 2023, and we predict there will be significant disruption to the process. Also, although verification is only required by VA at this time, the requirement will be going government-wide. Self-certification will no longer be an option.

Did you know that hundreds of New Hampshire companies sell over $6.5 billion per year to government agencies? Focusing on federal opportunities, this workshop will help you determine whether contracting or being a subcontractor are good strategies for your business.

BidMatch Profiles
Thursday, Dec. 16
NH PTAC offers a free Bidmatch service to automate your daily search for government bid opportunities and market intelligence. This webinar will provide an understanding of what the service searches, and how search profiles are designed to produce individualized results. Many years’ experience has taught us that the best way to build an effective search profile is to work in close collaboration with clients who have some understanding of the process. Here’s your chance to peek behind the curtain. This webinar is useful for companies that don’t receive Bidmatch, as well as existing Bidmatch recipients.

FAR Flowdowns - The Basics That You Need to Know
Thursday, Jan. 6
This webinar explores the way the government requires certain contract terms and conditions be passed on from Prime (direct) contractors to their subcontractors, and sometimes, all the way down the subcontracting chain. If your business is anywhere in the chain, it’s important to understand how these contract clauses apply to you, and which ones you must pass down in turn to your subs.
