Question 1: How can we make doing business with the government easier and less costly for small businesses, minority businesses, new entrants, and non-traditional government contractors?
Answer 1: So far I have not encountered any costs with trying to start a business, because I am doing extension research first. I do see there are a lot of costs to get started.
Question 2: If you are a small business, minority owned business, or new entrant, what features of the federal acquisition system are most helpful and which are least helpful to you?
Answer 2: I am a woman minority owned (self-certified) business owner in the making. I am not sure of what the federal acquisition system is yet. I have a lot of questions I would like to get answers to before committing to starting up a business with the federal government. Is there a website that allows for questions we may have?
