As early as 1914…. “the beginning purpose of organizing a Chamber of Commerce was the power to provide and maintain suitable rooms for the conduct of its business, to acquire, preserve, and disseminate valuable business information, and to promote the interest of trade and increase the facilities of commercial transactions.”
8(a) Business Development Program + Procurement Technical Assistance Center Services
The Brownsville Chamber of Commerce is collaborating with the U.S. Small Business Administration and the UTRGV Rio South Texas Regional Procurement Technical Assistance Center to bring you the 8(a) Business Development Program + Procurement Technical Assistance Center Services workshop.
The federal government uses special programs to help small businesses win at least 23 percent of all federal contracting dollars each year.
To help provide a level playing field for small businesses owned by socially and economically disadvantaged people or entities, the government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the 8(a) Business Development Programs.
The UTRGV PTAC will also present on services they offer the community.
