Himes to Hold Government Contracting Workshop May 7
BRIDGEPORT, CT – Congressman Jim Himes (CT-4) will hold a workshop to introduce small and minority-owned local businesses to the government procurement process on Friday, May 7th. Many local businesses could qualify for government contracts but do not have the certification or contacts necessary to secure projects. This workshop will introduce local businesses to the government offices that can assist them with certification and help them navigate the government procurement process.
The event is free and open to the public, but due to space limitations and expected high interest, reservations are suggested. To R.S.V.P, contact Shante` Hanks in the Congressman’s Bridgeport office at 203-333-6600.
