Organizers are inviting business owners, large and small, from across the region to come learn about the business needs and opportunity projections of Metro and Multnomah County for the current and upcoming fiscal years. Both agencies purchase everything, ranging from office supplies, veterinary services, health coaching, and various forms of counseling and personnel development services. We also purchase construction and construction related services.
Both agencies will have purchasing and contracting staff on site, along with project and program managers from the various departments to discuss program needs and projections with business owners. There will be representatives from the State of Oregon to provide information on ORPIN and how to become certified as a Minority-owned, Woman-owned, Emerging Small Business or Service Disabled Veteran-owned business.
There is no cost to attend; but organizers do ask that participants register, especially for the workshops and presentations at the event. Register for the event.
