Steve Towns, editor of Government Technology, offers the following advice for getting government contracts:
1. Get listed. “Most jurisdictions have a bidder list–you obviously want to get on that.”
2. Meet and greet. “Some jurisdictions hold meetings with suppliers; look for ways to get in the loop of what a jurisdiction is trying to accomplish with technology.”
3. Pay to play. Vendors can usually attend government technology conferences for a fee. Look for a conference in your state. If you’re a technology business, find out how you can become a presenter or panel participant.
