02augAll DayOne-On-One Business Counseling SessionsRegion:Central Virginia and South

Event Details

Last year, the Commonwealth of Virginia spent more than $6 Billion on goods and services. Goods and services that you probably sell! For every $100 the Commonwealth spent on goods and services, $37, went to a SWaM vendor. Are you getting your share???

The Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity (SBSD) will be conducting one-on-one counseling sessions to help you capture your share of these expenditures. Some topics we’ll cover may include SWaM / Micro business certification, eVa (Virginia’s electronic procurement portal), etc. Examples of what the eVa portal include are:

  • Identifying which state agencies are buying what you sell
  • How much the agencies are paying for those products and services
  • Who are the buyers and how to contact them
  • Who are your competitors
  • And much more
