Morgantown, WV business IT consulting company IT Mindshare announced the successful completion of the Federal Acquisition Management Certification Program offered by The U.S. Small Business Administration and Pierpont Community & Technical College.
The 6-month course, which began in July and requires 96 classroom hours broken up into six 2-day sessions, prepares students to bid on and perform work for the United States government.
The program consists of six separate parts, starting with an overview of federal acquisition regulations and moving into planning for strategic growth, marketing, winning federal contracts, and financial requirements.
The final components are negotiated procurement, which includes a mock negotiation, and contract management, which deals with all the things related to managing a federal contract.
IT Mindshare owner Jeremy Harris said:
“Barbara Weaver teaches an excellent course on how to do business with the federal government. We are a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and what I learned in this course has already helped us submit as a prime contractor for one opportunity, and partner with another contractor for consideration on a second government opportunity.”
