NJSBDC Procurement Program Fact Sheet
The Procurement program of the New Jersey Small Business Development Centers network offers consulting and other assistance to established small businesses who are interested in selling their goods and services to the federal, state, or local government. Clients are provided individual virtual counseling sessions, workshops and seminars, and referrals to public, state and federal government procurement and supplier diversity web sites.
The NJSBDC Procurement Program collaborates on a variety of programs with two Procurement Technical Assistance Centers in New Jersey and other small business and technical assistance organizations. The widely recognized Annual Procurement Expo and Matchmaker which draws over 400 people is produced by our Procurement Programs staff. Specialized consulting is available in rules and regulations, eligibility bid preparation, electronic commerce, and contract management. Workshops range from the most general and introductory in nature to topics narrowly defined by a specific field of interest. With the Federal government, the NJSBDC Procurement program assists clients with 8(a), Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB), HUBZone and Service Disabled Veteran (SDV) preference programs, proposal preparation and general contracting information. For state and local contracts, clients are assisted with Small Business Enterprise (SBE) registration, Selective Assistance Vendor Information (SAVI or SBE) registration, Women and Minority Business Enterprise (WBE/MBE) certification and proposal preparation; bidding opportunities website counseling. General information on corporate procurement processes, vendor registration and supplier diversity programs is shared via individual counseling sessions, workshops, and matchmakers. Working With You To enhance the assistance available to small businesses across the state, the NJSBDC Procurement program maintains a detailed bibliography of web sites, procurement books, articles, and other material to enable clients to research specific procurement topics.
