The U.S. space agency's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is sponsoring a workshop to teach small business owners how to obtain space-related contracts.
Representatives of small businesses are invited to the Wednesday workshop at the Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego's Mission Valley. The NASA workshop, "Doing Business with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory," is also sponsored by the San Diego Contracting Opportunities Center.
The featured workshop speaker will be Thomas May, manager of the JPL Business Opportunities Office and Supplier Diversity Program. May will explain JPL's procurement process for general services and supplies, and the opportunities available for small businesses, as well as those owned by women and veterans.
