Our goal is to connect small and diverse businesses with GRTC decision makers through a panel discussion to learn about GRTC’s procurement policies, purchasing needs and contracting opportunities.
Who Should Attend? Small, women, and minority-owned (SWaM) businesses.
Did you Know?
The U.S. Small Business Administration counts companies with as much as $35.5 million in sales and 1,500 employees as "small businesses", depending on the industry. Outside government, companies with less than $7 million in sales and fewer than five hundred employees are widely considered small businesses.
The definition of a small business is an independently owned and operated company that is limited in size and in revenue depending on the industry. A local bakery that employs 10 people is an example of a small business. A manufacturing facility that employees less than 500 people is an example of a small business.
Who is on the panel?
GRTC’s departmental buyers who spend a large portion of GRTC’s capital budget.
GRTC’s panelists: Tonya Thompson, Director of Procurement; Ray Delgadillo, Director of Maintenance; Rob Taggart, Director of Information Technology and Steve McNally, Director of Construction & Engineering.
