How to do Business with the State of California - Vallejo

Classes and Workshops Image: 

California wants to buy your products or services. Are you ready to sell them? This workshop will give you an opportunity to network with local government advocates and buyers like Dept of General Services (DGS), Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), CDCR (CA Dept of Corrections & Rehabilitation), CAL FIRE, CHP, Consumer Affairs and more! 

The state of California is the SIXTH largest economy in the WORLD! State agencies purchase everything from office supplies to construction services to goat rentals (seriously!), and everything in between. If you sell it, they probably buy it!

You will learn how to:

• Find, bid on and win state government contracts
• Navigate Cal eProcure
• Easily get certified as a Small Business or Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (SB/DVBE)
• Market your business to state agencies
• Advertise to prime contractors

• Receive free procurement assistance from Norcal PTAC

Featured Speaker:

Wayne Gross, SB/DVBE Advocate for the State of California Department of General Services, Procurement Division. Wayne educates businesses seeking to understand and navigate the State’s procurement system.


This is a free event. Parking passes are available on-site at kiosks for $1.

This event is sponsored by the CA Department of General Services.
