Help For Veteran Businesses To Win Government Contracts

By: Wes Schaeffer

Bidding on certain government contracts is reserved exclusively for veterans or service-disabled veterans.  Join us online on August 10 from 11:00 am until 12:00 pm to learn how you can certify your business as either veteran-owned or service-disabled veteran owned.  There is no charge for this program, but attendees must register at to obtain the webinar link.  The program will be recorded so that registered attendees can listen at a later time.

Topics to be covered include benefits of the certifications, eligibility requirements, and the certification process for each type of business.  Brett Housholder and Andrea Lewis of the Wyoming SBDC Network Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) will present this session.  Combined, they have over ten years of experience assisting businesses with government contracting.  Their expertise includes contracting planning and administration, specific certifications, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) interpretation, GSA schedules, invoicing, and marketing to government agencies.  For further information, contact Brett Housholder at (307) 234-3203 or
