In California’s effort to include more small businesses in its procurement process for goods and services, Caltrans will be hosting a virtual fair Wednesday and Thursday for interested vendors.

During the virtual procurement fair for Caltrans District 9, which includes Inyo County, and District 6, which includes Kern County, vendors can learn about how Caltrans sources and purchases goods and services. They can also hear about upcoming bid opportunities and get the chance to network with purchasers and advocates from Caltrans and other state agencies.

Christine Knadler, public information officer for District 9, said Monday that the workshops are for all small businesses, including “disadvantaged business enterprises” and “disabled veterans business enterprises.”

There is a session each day from 9 a.m. to noon.

For more information on the virtual fair and how to register, go to the Caltrans District 9 website and find the Small Business tab.
