Winning Government Contracts


Government contracting is not simple. There are various complex rules and registrations that must be followed in order to even submit a bid. This course will teach the basics of government contracting from the needed registrations, potential socio-economic set asides that a seller may be eligible to apply to become, how to find and prepare a response to a solicitation, and how to market your company to buyers - both the government entity and established prime contractors.

  • Understand the basic registrations that are needed to be awarded a contract by the federal government and the State of Missouri.
  • Know the basics of reading a solicitation from the federal government.
  • Determine if their business may be eligible for any socio-economic categories.
  • If they are potentially eligible for a socio-economic category, the basics of applying.
  • How to research the various online listings for government solicitations.
  • How to market your business to the government and active prime contractors.
