Chamber Academy - Researching the Government Marketplace
Because the government marketplace is huge, having a focused market approach is critical. Agencies (includes Federal, State of Alaska and local governments) have their own priorities, needs, and sometimes their own contract vehicles, so it’s important to find the right fit for your business. Attendees will look at several government websites and databases that include information on agency profiles, government spending, and current opportunities to help a company determine what agencies are in a position to buy what you are selling and if you have the right target market.
