Guam - Hoping to prepare local contractors and businesses for the military buildup, The Alliance Group is hosting several seminars this week to discuss techniques on what it takes to compete, win and successfully manage U.S. Government contracts. The first course touches on fundamentals of government contracting followed by cost estimating and contract pricing.
Gregory Garrett is an internationally recognized expert in federal contracts and will be instructing the event. He told KUAM News, "While understanding the rules that are extremely important, if you don't manage and estimate and price your deals appropriately it is possible to lose you deals on government contracts and unfortunately many companies have, so we're hoping the training course that we are hosting this week will prove to be very beneficial for government contractors."
The Federal Government Contracting Seminar will be held from October 19-22 at the Sheraton Laguna Resort. The cost is $1,200 per course.
