Introduction to Government Contracting and HUBZone Certification
Learn how to start selling to the federal government - we'll discuss market segments, buying channels, registrations, certifications and positioning.

The Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone) program helps small businesses located in a HUBZone gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities. This class will review the certification criteria, eligibility and where the zones are in North Dakota for this certification. The Federal Government has a goal of setting aside 3% of the $450 billion in contracts every year for HUBZone contracts.
