SAN DIEGO–Over the next few months, the County will host a series of workshops aimed at helping small businesses become County contractors and suppliers.
The next one-hour “Doing Business with the County” workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 19, at the Rancho San Diego Library, 11555 Via Rancho San Diego in El Cajon.
“We hope representatives from the region’s diverse small businesses will attend one of these workshops and learn how the County procures goods and services,” said Board Supervisors Chairman Bill Horn. “When the County does business with competitive local companies, everyone benefits.”
The workshops, hosted by the County Department of Purchasing and Contracting, will teach participants how to register with and use BuyNet, the County’s website for posting business opportunities and interacting with suppliers.
The workshop will also cover the County’s bid and proposal terminology, contract rules and regulations and the County’s payment terms.
