Event participants will also have the opportunity to:

  • Gain knowledge on what kind of products and services U.S. DOT and what other Federal agencies are procuring
  • Attend workshops designed to increase small business knowledge of the federal procurement process
  • Attend matchmaking sessions with DOT Operating Administrations, other federal agencies and DOT prime contractors

More than 20 representatives from a variety of agencies at the state, local, and federal level, as well as Prime Contractors, and Small Business Specialists will provide information throughout the event, as well as during the matchmaking sessions.
