To provide the most economic impact with the resources available, we are limited in what individualized services we can provide to startup companies without sufficient past performance or experience to demonstrate a potential for successful government contracting. We offer a broad array of training in the field of government contracting via our eCenter calendar, resources such as a handful of on-demand webinar recordings, local events, and our resources page to allow the startup company to take advantage of self-directed learning.
If you are interested in creating a business plan, establishing your business as a legal entity, or other topics that are not specific to government contracting, please find your local SBDC or SCORE office to see what services (including counseling) that they can provide.
Referrals from the Vet’s First Verification Program must meet the same guidelines as other clients to be eligible to seek assistance with their SDVOSB and VOSB applications from GMU staff serving Verification Assistance Counselors. We do encourage both eligible clients as well as startups or businesses not ready for government contracting to continue to utilize the webinars and training offered by the Veteran’s Administration. Those companies ineligible for counseling from PTAC can contact their local SBDC or VBOC for assistance with their Veteran’s Administration application for CVE.
