REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- The U.S. Army Contracting Command's Office of Small Business Programs held a two-hour training workshop March 23 at the Hogan Family YMCA in Madison.

The training was intended for local small businesses interested in learning how to do business with ACC and the Army. Approximately 80 people attended and ACC tweeted highlights of the seminar for those who were unable to attend.

"With a standing-room only crowd, the event was a huge success. We had a lot of positive feedback from attendees and will continue to plan such educational opportunities for the small business community," said Alice Williams, associate director of the Office of Small Business Programs.

During the seminar, ACC small business specialists discussed the mission and role of ACC, where to find Army small business opportunities, sources sought responses, bid matching services, subcontracting opportunities, company capability statements, federal acquisition regulations and marketing strategies.

This was ACC's second small business workshop and ACC intends to make it a monthly event. ACC is working to establish an online registration system via its Facebook page for the next workshop.

The ACC Office of Small Business Programs provides outreach support to the small business community through a variety of methods. For more information about the ACC Office of Small Business Programs, email or call 703-806-4017 or 256-955-7651.
