The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) to bring Federal contracting opportunities to Clark-Atlanta University (CAU) and the CAU small and disadvantage business community during the 2018 ‘Stay Ready’ 4th Quarter Readiness Small Business Conference on April 24-26, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia on the campus of Clark Atlanta University at Warner Hall. The 4th Quarter Readiness Small Business Conference will provide two action-filled days of learning, networking, engaging leaders in Federal contracting, and exhibitions. Participants will attend cutting-edge workshops, receive opportunities to have a fireside chat with Federal OSDBU Directors, participate in an elevator pitch competition, and learn best practices from Federal small business leaders. And last year’s combined federal small business spending from the participating federal agencies is over $10 billion dollars.
“The Federal contracting space can be an economic driver for state and local economies,” says Desmond Brown, Director of OPM’s OSDBU. “By creating strategic collaborations with HBCUs and professional and trade associations, we are providing tools and expertise to assist small and disadvantaged businesses owners in participating in the Federal contracting space.
Clark-Atlanta is the first of several HBCUs we will work with to spread the message.” CAU will host a networking reception at this year’s Small Business Conference to promote the ‘board room’ experience for participants to network with business leaders and peers.
