Many local government procurement agencies and the Commonwealth of Virginia’s procurement agency have a “set-aside” program that gives priority to small, woman-owned and/or minority-owned (SWaM) companies. Companies must apply for SWAM certification to be considered in this set-aside program.
Topics covered in this workshop:
- Details/benefits of the small business set-aside preference program
- Navigating the SWaM application process
- Positioning your business for greater success at winning contracts
- Live demo and walk thru of the SWaM certification website and the eVA website
