The webinar is intended for key employees and owners of small businesses pursuing Federal Government Contracts. Whether this is your first contract or subcontract, you are preparing to bid as a prime contractor, or want to improve the management and compliance of your federal awards, this training will assist in identifying what to pay attention to and what to expect from the time you start focusing on the bid or no bid for any contract, to the bid and proposal efforts. 

 This training webinar will focus strongly on compliance, managing, accounting and finance and understanding contracting activities within the Federal Government and will demystify some of the concepts and notions often misinterpreted.
