FREE Workshop: “How to Do Business with the National Park Service Intermountain Region,” 2/15/2017

The National Park Service (NPS) and the Montana Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) are hosting this event to help local small businesses compete for contracting opportunities with the Intermountain Region of the National Park Service (which covers Yellowstone NP, Glacier NP and Grand Tetons NP, among others).
