On April 9th we kick off our webinar series, Simplified Acquisition Spotlight focusing on USDA for our launch. We'll dive into the areas of spending by sub-agency, product or service and where the money is being spent around the country, or the world. Each session will also feature tips for reaching out to acquisition staff so you can get on their radar for future opportunities.
