Workshop set for small businesses about selling to government
March 17, 2017
• Sponsored by Caltrans and San Joaquin Regional Public Agency Consortium
• A morning of tips and networking
Small businesses trying to figure out how to sell their goods and services to state and local government agencies can get advice at a free workshop set for Stockton in April.
Caltrans and the San Joaquin Regional Public Agency Consortium are sponsoring what they call a “public works and purchasing showcase” on April 6 at the San Joaquin County Cabral Agricultural Center at 2101 East Earhart Avenue in Stockton.
This event runs from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. and connects small businesses with federal, state and San Joaquin County local governments. All businesses are invited to this free networking opportunity to learn about small business opportunities, supplier diversity programs, and procurement.
Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs and San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors Chairman Chuck Winn will kick off the event with a presentation, followed by two interactive panel presentations to give businesses a chance to ask questions and seek best contracting practices.
The first focuses on upcoming projects with Caltrans, San Joaquin County Public Works Department, City of Stockton Public Works Department, San Joaquin Delta College Contracting, California Water Service, and the University of the Pacific Capital Planning & Space Management.
The second features procurement opportunities with Caltrans, San Joaquin County Purchasing and Supportive Services Department, City of Stockton Purchasing Department, San Joaquin Delta College Purchasing Department, California Department of General Services and San Joaquin Regional Transit District.
