FLINT — The Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) of the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce presents “Secrets to Successful Government Contracting,” a three-part summer series which continues July 22 from 8:30-11:30 a.m. at the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce in the Mott Board Room. It concludes Aug. 26.

The seminars will be conducted by Todd Olson, program director of the Northwest Michigan PTAC office in Traverse City.

During the July seminar, “Understanding Federal Solicitation,” Olson will provide businesses with everything they need to effectively respond to federal solicitations, including Department of Defense solicitations. Participants will gain understanding of the differentiation between a Request for Quotation (RFQ), Invitation for Bids (IFB) and a Request for Proposal (RFP), as well as the best online resources.

In August, participants will learn the keys to “Responding to the RFP.” Olson will demystify the RFP process and provide participants with handson experience.
