“Ask The Contracting Officer! Finding SDVOSB Opportunities, From Contact To ConTRACT”
Two former contracting officers will share how you, as a veteran business owner, can win more. They’ll talk about what contracting officers really want, how source selection really happens, how to get in front of PM’s and CO’s *early*, and how to build the trust and relationships that lead to business.
Presenters are both veterans:
- Keith Seaman, TISTA Science & Technology, Former Deputy CIO for Veterans Affairs
- Stacey Coolican, President, Coolican Consulting, Former Supervisory Contracting Officer within DoD
Then we’ll open it up for YOUR questions, in what’s sure to be the liveliest Q&A of the year!
