Course Description

One of the most requested services from state and local governments is accounting and financial management. The government agency Request For Proposal process is sometimes hard and difficult to navigate. Selecting commodity codes, navigating individual websites and spending the time to understanding the procurement process and scoring system used to award bids can all be daunting for a small company that wants to enter this very lucrative area. As a result, winning these bids has largely been left to large national accounting firms who can staff this position with a full-time hire.  Join us for a one hour webinar where we’ll cover the basics to get you started.

Join us to learn:


  • Researching bids – what to look for when you are ready to jump in!

  • Building templates: Using what you learn when you “research” bids to help you build easy-to-use, ready made templates. 

  • How to start small and scale your government practice as you grow.

  • Understanding the rules: Avoiding little mistakes that immediately kick you out of the game.

  • Looking ahead for trigger events.

  • Scoring:  How it works and why it matters.


If you haven’t thought about doing government work as a way to grow your practice, this is a great chance to learn – and a great value add for your small business clients who often don’t think about government work opportunities in landscaping, construction, building maintenance – even concession stands.

Sign up today! Everyone who registers gets a Free DemandStar account and everyone who attends gets add-on access to the government agency of their choice.
