Virtual Event Virtual Event

Understanding the procurement process is a vital step for companies in K-12 looking to sell at the School, District, and State levels. This session will begin by discussing how to determine if you are ready for procurement and where to find opportunities. Establish a firm understanding of the types of procurement opportunities (RFP, RFI, RFQ, MTAC, Sole Source) and the nuance between a Listing Contract vs. Purchase Order. We will then break down the key parts commonly found in a response and how to approach the opportunity. The session will end with some key advice for forms and submission compliance.
