Concord, NH, April 26, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Over 600 New Hampshire companies this year have learned that there are millions of dollars in state and federal contracts available through the New Hampshire Procurement Technical Assistance Program.
In an effort to spread the good news about this revenue generating program, the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development has scheduled a free webinar titled “Selling to the Government – a Sound Business Decision” as part of the free NH BizCast series slated for Wednesday, April 28th from noon-1 p.m.
“Learning how to navigate through the government procurement process is a true art,” said New Hampshire Division of Economic Development Interim Director Roy Duddy. “There are millions of dollars and thousands of opportunities available for local companies to sell their products and services to the government, but it’s a process that requires a lot of education and effort. We’re pleased to have this opportunity to share this valuable information to businesses through this interactive webinar.”
The fourth offering in the Division of Economic Development’s BizCast series, the April 28th webinar will feature David Pease, manager of the New Hampshire Procurement Technical Assistance Program. Prior to entering state government service, Pease was a contract Business Advisor throughout south-central New Hampshire. He began his career as an environmental scientist, and became an entrepreneur in 1983 with the founding of Resource Analysts, Inc. (RAI). Pease presided over the growth, success and 1988 acquisition of RAI by Millipore Corporation. He ran RAI as a Millipore subsidiary until 1992, when he arranged its resale to PACE, Incorporated. He later managed several businesses for PACE until 1996, when he left the environmental field to work full-time with small businesses in a private consulting practice. He worked with NH Small Business Development Center clients on a contract basis from 2002-2008.
In this presentation, Pease will discuss contracting and subcontracting opportunities with Department of Defense (DOD), other federal agencies, or state and local governments. He will provide information about online resources for companies to get registered with various federal entities and give an overview of other free services offered by the State’s Procurement team.
As is the case with all NH BizCasts, the free Webcast will be hosted live at the Comfort Inn (71 Hall Street) in Concord and will feature a live audience. Professionals who cannot attend in person can watch the real-time broadcast of the webinar at http://www.NHEconomy.com/bizcast.
