Securing Government Contracts and Taking Your Business International

  • August 24, 2022
  • 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM
  • Zoom Meeting

Registration is closed


3RBA is fortunate to have Faith Collins from the Southwest PA Procurement Technical Center and Steven Murray International Trade specialist from the US Department of Commerce International Trade Commission join us for this informative webinar on government contracting and international trade.  The government contracting and intentional market can overwhelm a company that does not have the maturity, understanding or resources to meet requirements. Faith and Steven will help you determine if your company is ready for these opportunities and how to best position yourself to succeed.

ITA is organized into three primary business units working to improve the global business environment and help U.S. businesses to learn how to work and compete at home and abroad. Steven will walk us through an essential international business toolkit of practical exporting advice and business tools developed for you by trade professionals  

Faith will introduce the PTAC , give an overview of the government marketplace, how to get started in the government marketplace, and small business certifications that help. SPC helps counties, cities, municipalities and businesses access more than $35 billion state and federal transportation and economic development funds allocated to the region through 2045.

This webinar is open to and appropriate for any LGBTQ+ owned business or any other minority owned business.

Both the SPC and the ITA are strong partners with our national organization the NGLCC and work with certified vendors. Faith will  review the NGLCC certification process for becoming a certified LGBTQIA+ business entity through 3RBA. This will aid in securing preferred vendor and government contracts. 

Eligibility for LGBTE and other MBE certifications: Be at least fifty-one percent (51%) owned, operated, managed, and controlled by an LGBTQ+ person or other minority and persons who are either U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents.
