Contracting with federal agencies widens HBCU exposure to business opportunities and offers a potential source of increased revenue. Many HBCUs have been awarded contracts by individual federal agencies, but they do not hold a GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contract. The good news is that many HBCUs have the capabilities and infrastructure in place to seek and procure government requirements. GSA Schedule Overview & Benefits– Learn the benefits of being a part of the GSA Multiple Award Schedule Program, GSA issues long-term governmentwide contracts that provide federal, state, and local government buyers access to commercial products, services and solutions at pre negotiated pricing. The purpose of this training is to provide HBCUs a basic knowledge and understanding of the process that is required to get on a GSA schedule.Click here to see the full agenda and a list of Classes and presenters .Register for this free webinar now!(Event will be in-person & virtual .
