What Works "Hotter than The 4th of July" News U Can Use Letter

We are proud to bring to you – our loyal, dedicated, growing, and new audiences – an information packed News u Can Use Letter this month, and yes, it's Hot!

Some of it is hot off the press, other information is designed to help you grow your business know-how, and learn who and which agencies are working hard to carry out the mission to ensure that 12 % of federal contract awards are finally awarded to Small Businesses – based on merit and the intention to bring equity to acquisition – identifying and supporting new and emerging business suppliers, that can provide innovation and solutions to the Federal government's most pressing challenges.

We have also been on the road since our last article featured our work in Virginia Beach at the Defense Leadership Forum’s annual Navy Contracting Summit, and the history-making, never before seen before at a DLF conference – Under Secretary Don Cravins Jr., presenting to the Navy and the Forum's audience.

This month, we will share highlights of our MBDA Training Session, and the Department of Energy's Annual Conference (both in New Orleans).   As well as some excerpts from our work with the Department of Energy Office of Economic Impact Leadership team at the Georgia Tech MBDA Center, which is a new MBDA Federal Procurement Center Shared Outcome partner.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we salute you in this month's article chock filled with selected Federal Agency information that will engage, educate, and empower your small, emerging, and Minority businesses to deploy a focused strategic approach to capturing and winning Government contract awards.

The contents of this month's edition of What Works News U Can Use will be an invaluable help as we launch Phase II of our new digital platform, www.mbdafpcenter.com – where you will have the opportunity to link up, as in LinkedIn, with firms you want to do business with.  Enjoy, study this amazing content, go forth, and prosper!
