Government agencies — including the California High-Speed Rail Authority and Caltrans — are holding a procurement and networking event in Fresno on Friday as they seek Valley businesses to provide a range of goods and services.
The Spring Procurement Fair is 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Kern and Inyo rooms at the University of California Center, 550 E. Shaw Ave. Among the participating agencies are Corcoran State Prison, CalFire, Caltrans, the city of Fresno, and construction contractors with the California High-Speed Rail Authority.
In addition to information on the types of services that state agencies are looking for, the event includes workshops and assistance for businesses to become state certified for contracting opportunities as small or disadvantaged enterprises.
Details and registration information for the event are available online at www.hsr.ca.gov/docs/events/2015_Procurment_Fair_Packet_FINAL.pdf, or by contacting Peggy Chiok with the California High-Speed Rail Authority at email@example.com or (559) 445-5126.
