Moraine Park Technical College will offer two training sessions for businesses interested in learning more about General Services Administration (GSA). These training sessions will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 23, at Moraine Park’s West Bend campus and will be conducted by the Business Procurement Assistance Center (BPAC).

The Introduction to GSA Schedules Program session will be held from 9 - 11:30 a.m. This session will help businesses make the decision whether or not to pursue a GSA contract. If a business has sales success in the commercial marketplace and wants to pursue expanded sales in the Federal government, GSA might be the answer. Attendees will learn which products and services are available under GSA contract and how to identify their company’s proper schedule.

The GSA Solicitations - Responding to Requirements session will run from 1 - 3:30 p.m. The session will focus on how to complete the GSA solicitation paperwork. Attendees will receive specialized guidance organizing and positioning their company for a contract award. Topics of discussion include pricing policies, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clauses, required forms, performance requirements and more.

A $45 fee per person for each seminar will cover the cost of training materials. If you have questions, please contact BPAC by e-mail at bpacevents@madisoncollege.org or by phone at 608-243-4490.
