The webinar is scheduled for October 10th, 2012 from 3-4pm ET, 12-1pm PT. The webinar focuses on the spending changes affecting the Department of Defense (DOD) in all industries and market segments.
The course instructor for this webinar is TargetGov President and WIPP Educational Foundation Board Member Gloria Larkin. A sample of the topics she will cover in the webinar include spending changes affecting the DOD, places to find accurate budgets and forecasts, how small business will be impacted, a review of the DOD mentor-protege program, and tips on how to tailor your business profile to the needs of the DOD.
