SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) There are potentially millions of dollars in government contracts available to small businesses. But many people don’t know about them, or more importantly, they don’t know how to get one. Peter Makowski, from Salt Lake City Department of Economic Development and Chuck Spence, the Director of the Utah Procurement Technical Assistance Centers joined Good Morning Utah with Emily Clark to explain.

The 2017 Procurement Symposium, hosted by the Utah Procurement and Technical Assistance Centers (PTAC), is an opportunity for small businesses to learn how to compete in the government contracting marketplace.

This event is designed to get small business owners out into a live face-to-face setting and network with contractors. There will be business-to-business matchmaking, how-to workshops, and rapid-fire presentations on new procurement opportunities.

The symposium will be held at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy, Utah, on Wednesday, Oct. 11th.

Utah’s Procurement and Technical Assistance Center helps local business create opportunities in government contracting that they may not have been aware of.

They help companies navigate the paperwork and process, to identify the right opportunity with the right approach.

They have helped Utah businesses land more than $450 million in government contracts.

Subcontracting is a great way for small businesses to access federal contracts. When awarding a large contract, the government often requires a primary contractor to subcontract out a portion of the work to one or more small businesses.

By teaming up with primary contractors, small businesses can gain experience in government contracting to boost their revenue.

Participating vendors will be on site to discuss one-on-one and answer any questions. These vendors include more than 50 federal agencies, prime contractors and state and local buyers.

The symposium will be held at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy, Utah, on Wednesday, Oct. 11. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and the event ends at 2 p.m. For more information, or to register for the symposium, visit http://business.utah.gov/ptac

If you are a small business doing business in Utah, you do not want to miss this.
