PURPOSE. Whether you are new to federal acquisitions or experienced in doing business with military contracting entities, you’ll gain valuable information about your “next steps” in this special event. Attendees will receive a brief overview of who the military buyers are, what the military buys, and what buying opportunities are coming down the pipeline. Regardless of your experience with federal procurement, you’ll leave with a better understanding of how to proceed, whether it’s pursuing an upcoming opportunity, changing a marketing approach, following up with an acquisition office or proceeding instead to gain additional assistance. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and voice their concerns to the on-site acquisition representatives as well.
Finally, since a vendor’s best opportunity may come not from the federal government, but from another vendor in the room, the event will also provide excellent lateral networking opportunities. Be prepared to meet others who can help you advance your contracting goals.
Representatives from these entities will be on site:
North Carolina’s Navy and Marine Corps contract opportunity holders including:
Marine Corps Installations East
Naval Facilities Engineering Command
Marine Corps Special Operations Command
Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune
Resource providers who can assist businesses within the state including:
