There are many opportunities as a business owner to sell products and services to the federal, state, and local governments. The federal government is a huge marketplace for goods and services and can be quite confusing to navigate. Between the many federal government agencies and the military, the federal government spends around $350 billion annually. Businesses interested in selling goods and / or services to the federal government will need to register with the Central Contractor Registration (CCR).
The UMW-SBDC hosts one-on-one personalized government contracting assistance
consultations with advisors from the Virginia Department of Business Assistance and the Central Virginia Procurement Assistance Center.
