The IT Category: Creating Opportunities for Small Business
October 6 @ 8:00 am - 11:45 am
Mark your calendars for October 6 and join the Coalition for a brand-new event, The IT Category: Creating Opportunities for Small Business. This forum brings together acquisition experts from both government and industry to share the latest on programs and key policies impacting small businesses in the IT sector. The day begins with opening remarks from Laura Stanton, Governmentwide IT Category Manager and Assistant Commissioner of GSA’s IT Category. Laura brings her unique perspective to the governmentwide and GSA focused efforts to support small businesses in the federal IT market. Laura will discuss the overarching strategy for the IT Category in creating additional opportunities for small businesses.
Following Stanton’s remarks will be a 60-minute panel made up of program managers from NASA SEWP, NIH CIO-SP, and GSA’s MAS and AAS programs who will discuss contracting opportunities and how their respective programs engage with and support small businesses. We will then move to a second panel which focuses on crucial policies and legal issues that affect IT small businesses. In addition to these sessions, the event also provides a great networking opportunity for IT professionals. Both in-person and virtual attendance are offered.
