B.R. looking for businesses to participate in Contractor's College
The city-parish is inviting small construction businesses that want to compete for city and state contracts to apply to its Business with Baton Rouge Contractor's College. Applications for the collaborative program, being conducted in partnership with Southern University and Capital One Bank, are being accepted through the end of business today. On three successive Saturdays, the Contractor's College will teach small contractors the basics of securing government contracts: how to secure the bonding, insurance and certification required for city and state contracts. Applicants are required to have been licensed for at least one year, and to have between $500,000 and $1 million in annual revenue. "This new Contractor's College is another step in our continuing effort to strengthen the local pool of qualified small businesses and to help small business owners achieve success," Mayor Kip Holden says in a prepared statement. A total of 10 contractors will be selected for the initial Contractor's College, which will be held Saturday and on the following two Saturdays, at the Southern University campus. Each of the sessions will run from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., and lunch will be provided. Get complete details and apply here.
