The Virginia Department of Small Business & Supplier Diversity (SBSD), in collaboration with the Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) is offering one-on-one business counseling sessions. These sessions are designed to help businesses like yours better understand how to do business with the Commonwealth of Virginia state agencies. Whether it’s helping your business become certified in Virginia’s small business set-aside programs (SWaM and Micro), navigating the electronic portal which ALL state agencies use for solicitations (eVa), or helping you connect with key agency buyers SBSD can help! Some of the market research tools eVa offers are:
- Identifying which state agencies are buying what you sell
- How much these agencies are paying for your products and services
- Who are the buyers and how to contact them
- Who are your competitors
- And much more
Armed with this information, your company will be better positioned to win state contracts as well as contracts with many local government agencies across the region.
