MetroConect: How to Do Business with Metro Workshop
October 9, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am
The Metro Diversity and Economic Opportunity Department invites you to attend our monthly “How to Do Business with Metro Workshop”, conducted every 2nd Tuesday here at Metro Headquarters. This two-hour orientation provides information on Metro’s certification program, vendor registration, contract look-ahead schedules and other useful information. Each month, we invite a Prime Contractor who is looking for small business partners, to address those present. Before the Workshop begins, Procurement Contract Administrators from Vendor/Contract Management are available to assist you as you explore future contract opportunities. If you want to understand the process, or have questions about the Programs we offer, we are here to guide you.
