How to do business with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is the focus of a free seminar coming this month.
The Corps’ Walla Walla District office will host the “Industry Day” event March 25 at its headquarters building, 201 N. Third Ave. Participants can register online at www.nww.usace.army.mil/ and click on the “Industry Day” announcement under news releases.
The Walla Walla District awards contracts for construction projects, architect and engineering studies and supplies and services needed to operate their facilities. These contracting opportunities total $90 to $110 million annually, said Kay Baltz, small business programs manager for the Walla Walla District.
The seminar runs 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Participants should make their own lunch arrangements. Early registration is urged because seating is limited.
Topics to be covered include how to respond to a “sources sought and solicitations” notice, how to register in the online contractor management system and where and how to find Corps contracting opportunities. There will also be a panel discussion on “How to do Business with the Corps” and round-table discussions in the afternoon.
“The Walla Walla District is an economic driver in this region and actively seeks contractors to support our efforts,” Baltz said. “We’d like to help businesses in the region know how to work with the Corps.”
