Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) June 6, 2006
Business Research Services announced that the company has acquired Minority Business Insider. MBI will be folded into Set-Aside Alert, now the only comprehensive newsletter dedicated to small business issues regarding selling to the federal government. “Minority Business Insider subscribers will now have more coverage of the federal contracts marketplace,” stated Tom Johnson, president of Business Research Services. For thirteen years, Set-Aside Alert has been the leader in bringing useful marketing information to the small business owner, whether minority-owned, woman-owned, HUBzone, disabled veteran, Vietnam-era veteran or active bidder on small business set-asides.
MBI subscribers will now receive daily emails of new set-aside opportunities, along with other benefits from Set-Aside Alert. In place of twelve monthly issues, Set-Aside Alert is published 25 times annually. Each issue is packed with information, like changes in acquisition regulations, agency audit revelations, bid protest results and long-range opportunity alerts. Contributing writers include leading legal and accounting professionals and experienced marketing consultants. The bi-weekly calendar lists networking and matchmaker events, as well as training seminars and agency outreach sessions.
Small business firms can submit their qualifications and interests to the newsletter’s Teaming Opportunities page at no charge. Newly-certified 8(a) firms are listed, as well as recent contract awardees, enabling business owners to develop networking and mentoring relationships with other more-experienced firms. The publication is a useful training guide for all managers and executives in small businesses.
Warren Corbett, editor of Set-Aside Alert, has been leading the Set-Aside Alert newsgathering effort since Business Research Services acquired the publication in 2001. “MBI subscribers will reap a huge gain from this transition, as Set-Aside Alert publishes twice as often and provides significantly more breaking news content, while delivering day-by-day details on federal opportunities for America’s small business owners,” he said.
