Procurement session on Friday will help small businesses get certified

Spokane’s Women’s Business Center is hosting a session Friday morning on landing contracts with area government and education agencies or with Fairchild Air Force Base.

Aimed at small-business owners and managers, the free event runs 8 a.m. to noon at the East Central Community Center, 500 S. Stone St.

More than 20 businesses will be represented. They will meet with a panel of area procurement officers who work at the air base, the Community Colleges of Spokane, the city of Spokane and other groups.

Any business wanting information about federal contracting services is encouraged to attend, said Laurie S. Roth-Donnell, the business center manager.

The main focus will be on business owners qualifying for certification with Washington’s Procurement and Technical Assistance Center program, she said.

A panel of local experts will share information with attending businesses, and from 10:30 a.m. to noon there will be a business trade fair
