Ashburn, VA – The National Contract Management Association (NCMA) has entered a partnership with the Public Spend Forum (PSF) to support small business and new entrants to government contracting.
“The Public Spend Forum team has been a powerful supporter of the Federal mission with data, coaching, and training,” said Kraig Conrad, NCMA CEO. “The timing of this partnership is perfect given Executive Orders and strong drives to expand traditional and non-traditional entrants.”
PSF, a provider of comprehensive AI-enabled market data, will share information on entrants so NCMA can provide learning and networking for those new to government contracting. The NCMA community of local chapters will use this information to welcome new entrants and help them on their journey in support of the Federal mission. PSF will further support this effort by making available their leading content aimed at reducing barriers of entry.
“PSF’s mission is to arm public sector buyers and emerging/diverse suppliers with AI-enabled Market Intelligence, collaboration tools, and expert-driven market advice so they can discover each other and work together to deliver impact on critical public missions,” said Raj Sharma, Founder, and CEO of Public Spend Forum. “I’m personally excited to partner with NCMA to connect and support buyers and suppliers.”
