Helping businesses sell to the Government
It has been years since the VA has hosted an Industry Day for contractors (2011), but this year is going to be different. Just released in the newest VA FSS Newsletter, Volume 59, issue 1, May 2015, an Industry Day is in the works.
“We have heard from many of our current contractors that have attended these sessions in the past have found them to be very beneficial and they, along with prospective contractors, have requested the NAC to bring these events back. I am happy to share that the NAC is working with the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) to put on an industry conference. We have provided our requirements to the OSDBU. The FSS Service is proposing training in the following areas: • Town Hall: Recent Changes and Way Ahead with Q&A • Trade Agreement Act • Public Law • Services • Audit Process • Submitting an Offer • Contract Administration, both basic and advanced • Negotiations • Contract Extensions • FSS Website Information/Tools • Electronic Tools We also intend to host one-on-one sessions with current and potential contractors. Please be on the lookout to review the full agenda and provide your feedback on the NAC proposed industry conference. We are excited about the opportunity to meet with industry and want to ensure a valuable experience for all; we value your input.”
