When evaluating the state government marketplace, a company must consider that each state is an independent market with its own procedures and entry points for contracting. 

As well, most states have their own small business certification procedures and requirements for certifying minority-, woman- or veteran-owned businesses.

The National Institute of Governmental Purchasing, Inc. maintains a listing of Procurement Websites for each of the 50 states.  Connect to this site to begin exploring contracting opportunities and certifications in any of the states in the US.
