Government Contracting Seminar Series

To minimize the health and safety risks presented by the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Florida SBDC at UCF has made adjustments to our current events schedule.  

It has become increasingly clear that social distancing is critical in preventing the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Social distancing means avoiding mass gatherings and settings with large amounts of people and maintaining distance from others when possible.

The Florida SBDC at UCF will continue to monitor the situation and will update our website with any additional changes to currently scheduled events.

Please visit the Department of Health’s dedicated COVID-19 webpage for information and guidance regarding COVID-19 in Florida. Information regarding current CDC travel advisories related to COVID-19 is available here:

This series of three seminars provides the necessary knowledge and tools for businesses interested in working with the federal government. Topics include: Growth Planning for Government Contractors; Subcontracting & Teaming; and Winning the Contract: Marketing & Selling to the Government.
