Small Business


The U.S. Small Business Administration created an online course intended to help women small business owners learn how to identify and take advantage of federal contracts. Winning Federal Contracts: A Guide for Women Entrepreneurs teaches them about the federal procurement process and prepares them to compete for contracting opportunities. The self-paced guide uses audio and text to provide information about contract rules, how to sell to the government, and where to find contracts.

 

The course is available on the SBA’s Web site at sba.gov/fedcontractingtraining. It is indexed by subject matter, and includes direct links to additional contracting resources.
