Procurement Outreach Program for Small Businesses

Looking for ways to increase business opportunities? In today's marketplace, the government may become a great consumer for any product(s) and/or service(s) a firm can offer. Some firms may believe that the process of targeting and securing government business is challenging and fail to realize the potential of doing business with government.

The POP-Up Shop is a unique series of events, designed and coordinated by the City of Miami's (City) Procurement Department (Procurement) as its official Procurement Outreach Program for Small Businesses.

The format for each event will consist of two (2) parts; 1) a networking event to connect small and large firms; and 2) facilitating individualized services and/or resources supported by various City partners. The events may include activities such as, but not limited to:

  • Networking Opportunities for smaller firms or subcontractors to forge partnerships with larger firms or prime contractors.
  • Educational Services to provide information on “How to do business with the City”, including topics such as procurement policies, procedures, and opportunities.
  • Matchmaking Opportunities with various City Departments and other government agencies to help firms to target business opportunities.
  • Support Resources to promote small business development programs, tools and other available resources.
  • Technical Guidance with registration processes for small businesses such as becoming a City vendor and Certified Small Business Enterprise (CSBE) qualification, registration and compliance.
