SNHU - Are you Interested in working with Government Contracting

Free June Government Contracting Workshops sponsored by one of our resource partners- NH PTAP

System for Award Management (SAM) - Tuesday, June 18, 2013   9:00AM – 11:30AM
Laconia – Lakes Region community College, Room 218, 379 Belmont Road, Laconia, NH

Every business selling to the federal government is required to register in SAM, the System for Award Management. SAM combines several older databases that enable government agencies to identify who you are, what you do, how to contact you and how to pay you. It also establishes whether or not you qualify for preferential treatment as a small business, and establishes your agreement to standard Federal contract terms and conditions. SAM is a new system, and can be somewhat challenging to use for new users and old hands alike. We can help you to take maximum advantage of the system with the least effort and frustration.
