Businesses hoping to work with the local government on future projects will soon have a chance for information on how to be considered.
Forsyth County is hosting a vendor symposium at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30, for companies interested in doing business with the county government at the county’s administration building in downtown Cumming.
“We are inviting vendors to come in and learn about how the county procurement process works,” said Director of Procurement Donna Kukarola in a news release. “Businesses of all types are encouraged to attend this event, as we purchase a wide variety of materials, equipment and services.”
Forsyth County’s Board of Education will also be present at the meeting to share information on doing business with the local school system.
At the event, businesses will have the chance to network with other businesses and learn about the county’s procurement process and future procurement opportunities.
Other topics to be covered at the meeting are the county’s local business initiative, emergency supplier network and Vendor Self Service Portal.
The administration building is located at 110 E. Main Street. The meeting will be held in the commissioners’ meeting room, Suite 220, located upstairs in the building.
