This page is a compilation of web resources that supplements The Contracting Education Academy’s workshop entitled “Teaching Your Clients How to Obtain a Small Business Certification” and The Academy’s Workbook by the same name. The workshop was first conducted on November 10, 2019 in conjunction with the Fall 2019 Training Conference of the Association of Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (APTAC).
For the convenience of PTAC Counselors, the links listed below are grouped consistent with the organization of the printed Workbook. Included in the resources posted below are several “Client Tips,” each designed to be used by PTAC Counselors to educate clients about a specific aspect of the Certification Application process. The “Client Tips” are marked with this symbol:
The Academy hopes that PTAC Counselors find all of these resources helpful as you work with businesses to help them become certified to win government contracts.
The Academy intends to maintain this web page as a perpetual resource for use by APTAC members now and into the future. New resources and updates will be made on an on-going basis. Please email us at info@ContractingAcademy.gatech.edu if you discover a web link that is broken so that we may update it. Also, APTAC members are encouraged to suggest additional resources which could be added to this page.
