SCORE Boston Workshop

Opening Doors to Federal Government Contracting

The Government Buys Everything from
Paperclips to Mother of all Bombs!

Take your business to the next level by selling your product or service to the federal government. Let SBA help you to learn how it’s done by attending this workshop on federal contracting. Learn basic requirements and what you will need to get started. Get proper registrations and ID numbers and view the NAICS code list for size standards. Get prepared to register with System for Award Management (SAM) to certify that your business is eligible for contracts that are reserved for small businesses. 

If you are thinking about starting a business or have a small business that can benefit by contracting with the federal government, this workshop is for you. 

Certifications and Representations to be discussed will include:

  • Women-Owned Small Business
  • Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business
  • Small Disadvantaged Business
  • 8(a) Business Development Program
  • HUB Zone Contracting Program


This workshop is co-sponsored by SCORE Boston and the Small Business Administration.


The workshop is presented by Nadine Boone and Lisa Gonzalez Welch. Nadine is currently Lead Business Opportunity and Lead Economic Development Specialist at the US Small Business Administration (SBA)-MA District Office. She serves as Program Manager of the SBA Federal Government Contracting Division. Lisa has been employed by the SBA for 30+ years and is an Economic Development Specialist responsible for managing the northeast part of the state and the Women’s Business Ownership Representative for Massachusetts.
