“Opening Doors” to Federal Government Contracting - May 19

The Town of Franklin is hosting a Small Business Association (SBA) seminar on May 19, 2016 at the Incontro Restaurant (860 West Central Street, Franklin, MA), to help businesses learn about contracting with the Federal government. The Federal government spends over $220 billion dollars per year, purchasing good and services from private businesses, with $51 billion allocated to purchasing goods and products from small businesses.

Many people tend to think of the Federal Government purchases only military equipment such as tanks and aircraft, but the reality is that the Federal Government purchases products and services that covers all major industrial groups. Examples of products and services purchased include, cleaning supplies, janitorial cleaning services, printing, boxes, gloves, cars, trucks, office supplies, office equipment, office furniture, lab equipment, food, uniforms, medical equipment, prescription medications, etc. 

Bryan Taberner, Director of Planning and Community Development for the Town of Franklin said that “winning a contract with the Federal Government can have a very significant positive impact on the business.” He further explained that the Town of Franklin wants to help businesses succeed and hire more employees because this helps the company, the town, the region and families of those employees.

The event is free and open to business owners. You may RSVP at http://bit.ly/1SfkbIg
