Jenny Day, SCORE Workshop Coordinator
Fort Worth - Chapter 120

This workshop will provide a step-to-step guide on becoming a GSA Schedule contractor. The first major step is to assess the marketing opportunities available with a GSA Schedule contract. The second major step is to understand the GSA solicitation, which will give a potential contractor the information, instructions, regulations and the forms you will use to make an offer. The third major step is to complete the offer document in the GSA e-Offer system. The workshop is for those who want a quick orientation and do-it-yourself "road map" for becoming a GSA Schedule contractor.

Workshop Fee $20
