Selling To Fairfax County (Online Presentation)
DPMM hosts a monthly workshop called “Selling to Fairfax County.” The workshop is designed for prospective vendors and those interested in learning about the Fairfax County procurement process. All are welcome. The workshop is an hour long with plenty of time for questions and discussion. Topics include how the County’s business opportunities are advertised (eVA), the mechanics of the County’s procurement process from informal to formal solicitations (IFBs/RFPs), the County’s supplier diversity program and resources such as our Contract Register (a search engine for current county contracts). While the workshop agenda remains constant, subject matter experts join on a rotating basis. See below for more information.
All workshops are hosted virtually and evening options are provided to broaden participation. Click on the links below to register.
