Government Procurement Guide

Government Procurement Guide

The government is the largest buyer of any product or service in the U.S., and generally intends for a sizable portion of its overall spend to flow to small- and mid-sized businesses. But for SMBs, the process of securing government contracts can be challenging and cumbersome. Recognizing that small businesses are part of the backbone of the U.S. economy, Microsoft is committed to furthering their success. That is why Microsoft is proudly sponsoring Braddock's Procurement Opportunities Guide: 2013 Edition, which helps demystify the process for how to secure government contracts and provides small businesses with information to help them compete successfully with large companies.

Information included in the guide:

  • How to sell to state and federal government, large corporations, foreign governments, and international organizations.
  • What type of technology can help provide a competitive advantage.
  • Where to find resources for woman-owned, minority-owned, and veteran-owned businesses.

Download the e-guide—and access the benefits today.
