BidMatch Profiles - New Resource? Time to Update?
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 will be useful for companies that currently don’t receive Bidmatch as well as existing Bidmatch recipients.

Labor Laws for Federal Contractors -SCA, Davis-Bacon,EEO, and Affirmative Action--What do you need to know 
Every time we complete a SAM registration, we have to answer questions about Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action compliance. We’ll explain the compliance thresholds for these labor laws so you can feel confident that you know whether you have work to do in this arena.
Most federal construction contracts & subcontracts, and many service contracts, are subject to fair wage and benefit laws that must be complied with. We’ll provide thumbnail sketches of the Davis-Bacon Act (construction) and the Service Contract Act (services), and can point you to excellent resources that will help you understand how to achieve full compliance.
