Is your business one of the hundreds that brings in billions in federal contracts to New Hampshire every year?
Government contracting offers New Hampshire small businesses a way to expand their customer base selling goods and services to local, state and federal governments. The catch is that doing business with the government has a few more layers that traditional business-to-business.
“Every year, hundreds of New Hampshire companies receive between $1.5 billion to $2 billion in federal contracts alone, with hundreds of millions more from state and local government contracts,” said Dave Pease, program manager for the New Hampshire Government Contracting Assistance Center, part of the state’s Division of Economic Development. “New Hampshire businesses are very successful in winning these types of contracts, ranking 7th in the US and #1 in the Northeast in per capita federal small business contracts.”
No business is too small to get into government contracting, he said.
“Uncle Sam is like any other consumer – it needs the sames services, equipment, supplies that other companies order from your business,” he said.
Winning Federal Contracts – A Great Business Opportunity or a Nightmare will explore how doing business with the government is different than private business; what kind of opportunities there are and where to find them and the resources available for guidance through the process.
