APAC Client Connection

April 2017
Are you interested in receiving a contract with the State of Arkansas? There are a plethora of funding opportunities available. 
How do you make contracting officers aware of what you can provide? 

In business, one of the most basic elements is marketing - making your buyers aware of what you are offering. In government contracting, marketing is no different.

This month's Highlight comes from Faulkner County - Conway Wholesale Produce.

Did you know that Arkansas has a colony of primates that work for the federal government?  A government contract was released in early 2017 to source food for the primate colony and our APAC team helped connect Conway Wholesale Produce to this opportunity.
