Features Major changes to bid on government contracts

A workshop will be held at the SCC Macon Cecil L. Groves Center room 107 on Thursday, Nov. 8, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. to go over the changes made to the government registration system.

To do business with the government in the past required the yearly the Central Contract Registration/ORCA. This was changed the end of July 2012 to the system. The new registration has not gone smoothly and many have asked for help. Clark Fields PTAC out of Asheville and Teresa Bouchonnet with the N.C. Military Business Center will try to explain this new process.

The class will be held in a computer lab room, and will try to cover ways to make the process pain free. If you had completed the in the past, bring your Dun & Brad Street Number with you to this free workshop. If you are a nonprofit then this change will also affect you.

On the agenda will be a review of the major government websites to find what the government is buying and How the Budget Control Act or Sequestration will affect future contracts.
