Wondering What’s on the Horizon? Businesses will have the opportunity to directly connect and interface with multiple local and state agencies gaining knowledge about upcoming projects and related qualification requirements. Discussions will also include what tools businesses need in order to plan and be more competitive within government contracting.
Businesses will participate in four, timed focus groups, each drilling down to offer a more concise understanding of business management and government contracting.
An informative workshop focused on a wide range of project opportunities across multiple agencies and funding sources. Discussions will feature projects funded by the Penny Surtax among many others. Local agencies taking part are Palm Beach County, Palm Beach County School Board, the City of West Palm Beach. There will also be an overview of current procurement policies as they relate to bidding on projects.
