SWaM Certification Process and How to Do Business with the City of Virginia Beach

DUE TO THE COVID-19, ALL WORKSHOPS/TRAINING EVENTS WILL BE CONDUCTED VIA PHONE OR OTHER TELECONFERENCING OPTIONS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

This workshop is in partnership with the City of Virginia Beach Economic Development and Purchasing divisions.

Are you a small, women-owned, or minority-owned business who wants to do business with the Commonwealth of Virginia?  Small business owners who are looking to participate in Virginia’s specialized procurement and contracting opportunities are encouraged to become SWaM certified. The SWaM certification is a vehicle to promote economic growth of Virginia’s businesses.

State (SWaM) Certification is one of the most powerful business tools you can use to grow your sales among state agencies, public colleges and universities, local municipalities, and private sector firms that utilize the SWaM database.

Each year state and local government spend millions of dollars on goods and services and want to do business with you to increase participation of small, women owned, and minority-owned businesses.

This workshop will cover the SWaM Program and designations, certification process and new on-line application portal (live demo), required documents needed to apply, and how to use the certification to do business with the Commonwealth and local government.

Additional information will also be provided on How to Do Business with the City of Virginia Beach and the new Supplier Portal!

Presented by Angela Barber, Business Services Manager – Hampton Roads/Eastern Shore Region.

This workshop is in partnership with the City of Virginia Beach Economic Development and Purchasing divisions.

REGISTERED PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE AN INVITATION WITH A LINK TO JOIN PRIOR TO THE EVENT.
