Certification Workshops

Do you want to expand your business opportunities by selling to the government?  Do you know if the government buys your products and services?

The Aurora-South Metro SBDC is collaborating with Connect2DOT and the Colorado Minority Business Office to offer a series of certification workshops in 2019–all taught by certification, estimating and transportation experts.  The first in the series is this Friday, and a second companion and essential workshop is April 26th.  Plan to attend both workshops in order to take advantage of free and confidential one-on-one consulting with a certification expert.

Your Capability Statement

Your Capability Statement for Government Contracts
Friday, April 20, 2018, 1:00 – 3:00 PM, FREE

Why It’s Important to Have A Capability Statement and What is the Purpose of a Capability Statement?

Due to the heightened competitive market place in the construction/transportation industry, Capability Statements are no longer common in the public sector procurement and are not exclusive to government contracting. They are now effective in the private sector. In order to be competitive and stay successful in your markets, a capability statement is a critical tool no matter what size company you represent.
