PTACAre you interested in providing goods or services to the City of Flint or Genesee County?  Then you should join the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) as they host a Flint & Genesee County Contracting Opportunities 5.0 workshop.    The workshop takes place on Wednesday, December 4 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Chamber offices in downtown Flint.

Dustin Frigy, Director of PTAC for the Chamber says businesses should consider learning how government contracting can increase growth and diversification.  The Flint & Genesee County workshop is the last workshop in a five-part certification series designed to help businesses work with government departments.

He says the workshop will provide all of the information needed to pursue local and county government contracts, along with navigating the bid process and developing proposals.

“Working with the City of Flint and Genesee County can provide growth opportunities for local businesses,” said Frigy. “The workshop will reveal the nuts and bolts of navigating the government contracting process.”

Attendees also will learn about the services and support the Regional Chamber PTAC has available to help with the contracting process. The series will benefit management and employees who currently support or have an interest in facilitating government contracting within their companies.

There is no cost to participate in the series, but registration is required.
