Parties interested in sharing information on either the efficiencies of the existing contract or trends in related market sectors are invited to attend.

Vendor Day September 12, 2018

Written on: August 22nd, 2018 in BusinessEducation

Does your business see the State of Delaware as a potential customer?
Do you find the process of public procurement challenging?
Have you ever wished someone would sit down and explain the process in everyday language?
Then the educational workshop Vendor Day is an opportunity you don’t want to miss. In this four hour workshop we will:

• Explain how the State purchases products and services
• Point you to online resources that will help you develop a strategy
• Offer tips for crafting a successful proposal
• Show you how to identify unadvertised business opportunities

Vendor Day September 12, 9:00a.m. – 1:00p.m. is presented jointly by the New Castle County Emerging Enterprise Center, 920 Justison Street, Wilmington, DE 19801 and Delaware’s Government Support Services.
