TD Chamber CEO Hopes To Help Local Businesses Acquire State/Federal Contracts

The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce CEO Lisa Farquharson will be taking part in this week’s Governor’s Marketplace, where businesses meet those involved in doing federal and state contracts.  Farquharson says some businesses think you have to be a large operation to bid on a federal and state contract, but that’s not the case, and she wants to be able to help local businesses get some of those jobs.  Her goal is to come back with a guide for area businesses to use to get in the running for those contracts.  Farquharson says they will be meeting with several agencies that do direct bids for goods and services.  She adds a mobile Governor’s Marketplace will be held in The Dalles in the fall.
