Many government agencies and commercial organizations seek to include veteran-owned, minority-owned and women-owned businesses as suppliers, contractors and service providers. This presentation and panel discussion was designed to provide knowledge needed to participate in commercial and government contracting programs. We brought together government purchasers and provide veteran-owned, minority-owned and women-owned businesses with critical information on certification programs and growing their business through supplier and contractor programs. Veteran, minority and women business owners heard from industry experts and procurement officers on how they can grow their businesses with commercial contracts.


  • Certification options available to your business
  • Requirements necessary to become a certified veteran-owned, minority-owned or women-owned business
