Regional Contracting Forum
8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. March 1, 2005
Union Station Great Hall and
Sound Transit Board Room
401 S. Jackson St., Seattle

Each year, more than 500 people attend this annual networking and information-gathering event that is now in its third year. The Forum provides a "one-stop" location for business owners seeking to do business with government agencies to ask questions that will help them navigate the public competitive bidding process.

The Forum's structure provides useful information to contractors, vendors, and suppliers on upcoming contracting opportunities in construction, consulting, goods, and services of political jurisdictions throughout the Puget Sound region. Public procurement officials and others from the jurisdictions will be available to talk directly with attendees to answer questions on the public contracting process, including how to sign up for contracting and consultant rosters. Business owners can network with other businesses and visit several resource agency representatives who will be available to discuss myriad resources and technical assistance available to help small businesses, many at no cost.
