** Canceled ** Doing Business with the Government - Panel Discussion

Tuesday, August 16, 2022 (8:00 AM - 10:00 AM) (CDT)


** Canceled **

Government agencies are collectively one of the largest consumers of goods and services. And yet, almost all of them struggle to find small businesses to bid on their contracts.

With the release of funds from READI (Regional Economic Acceleration & Development Initiative) and ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act), then major projects like the I-69 bridge, there is an even greater need for businesses that are ready to do business with the government.

This panel discussion and its accompanying website will help small business owners in Southwest Indiana navigate the complexities of doing business with various government agencies, from the City of Evansville on up to the federal government.


  • Christine Prior, Project Manager, Department of Metropolitan Development (City of Evansville and Vanderburgh County)
  • Jim Haddan, PTAC Specialist, Indiana Procurement and Technical Assistance Center (PTAC)
  • Jenna Richardt, Vice President of Economic Development, Evansville Regional Economic Partnership (E-REP)

Attendees of this panel discussion are highly encouraged to do a little homework in advance so we can have a more in depth discussion during the event. Visit the new Evansville Regional Economic Partnership (E-REP) web page: Doing Business with the Government to review the information provided there.
