How to Subcontract on Government Contracts

The North San Diego SBDC is proud to announce our newest collaborator with the small business community and government contracting!!!
The 2013 Fall Session Turner School of Construction Management Training Program for MBE/WBE/SBE construction firms will be presented September 12th, 2013 through November 5th, 2013...This is a MUST for any construction related business looking to work with government agencies, to register, download and complete the form:
The Turner School of Construction Management will begin with a Kick-Off Reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 12, 2013
Turner Construction is extremely pleased that the San Diego Regional Airport Authority has agreed to partner in this program as well as other firms in the construction industry.
The classes are scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 9:00 p.m. beginning Tuesday, September 17th, 2013 through Thursday, October 31st,  2013.  Classes will be held at the San Diego Regional Airport Authority Commuter Terminal-3225 N Harbor Drive-2nd Floor.  The program will conclude with a Graduation Ceremony on Tuesday, November 5th.
Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis with priority consideration given to members of the co-sponsoring organization. There is no cost to participate however, because we normally turn away interested firms, it is important that we have a firm commitment from those who are accepted.  There is a cost for withdrawal after the third class
Since 1969, Turner has offered Construction Management Training Programs, benefiting hundreds of M/WBE and SBEs across the U.S. The community affairs initiative was first spearheaded by then chairman Howard Turner who believed that the enhancement of minority and women business development was key in the construction industry.  Turner continues to strongly support the increased representation of M/WBE/SBEs in the industry and has an annual goal of 20 percent utilization of these enterprises in the areas of construction, subcontracting, prime contracting, join venture relationships and goods and services.  Turner Construction Company, the nation’s leading general builder, announced that it awarded 2,800 contracts totaling over $1 billion to minority and women owned business enterprises (M/WBEs) during 2006. This is the 6th consecutive year that the company has surpassed the milestone of awarding in excess of $1 billion of contracts to M/WBE firms.   Since 2005, on an average annual volume of $6.2 billion, an average volume of approximately $1 billion has been awarded to MWBE firms.
