Are You Ready to Expand Your Business with Government Contracting?

Take the first steps to government marketplace success with local, state and federal agencies. Join us to learn how to find, bid on, and win government contracts.


#3: Finding Contracting Opportunities

One of the first steps to government marketplace success is knowing where to find opportunities. In this webinar, we will look at the different sites for locating contracting opportunities and how to search those sites to find opportunity matches.

Federal agencies post solicitations to Beta.SAM and California agencies post opportunities to Cal eProcure but navigating these websites and narrowing down the search might require some guidance. When it come to County/Local agencies, finding their opportunities and requirements can be challenging as well. Some agencies will post to their own sites and others will use a subscription type service like Bid Sync.

Topics will include:

  • Federal opportunities utilizing Beta.SAM
  • California State opportunities in Cal eProcure
  • Find County/Local bid offerings
  • Setting up custom bid match through Norcal PTAC
