Military procurement workshop set for Oct. 10 in Huntington

Small businesses from around the region can learn about contracting opportunities with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps during a free workshop October 10 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Robert C. Byrd Institute (1050 Fourth Ave.) in Huntington.

The event, sponsored by the Regional Contracting Assistance Center (RCAC) and the Department of Navy Strategic Systems Programs, is designed to educate small businesses about procedures and guidelines for doing business with these military branches and explain how to find out about upcoming contracting opportunities.

“Contracting opportunities for small businesses with the Navy and Marines are almost endless,” said Derek Scarbro, director of RCBI’s Appalachian Hatchery. “This is a unique opportunity to learn about contracting opportunities directly from Navy procurement officers and consult with RCAC staff to help navigate the process.”
