HOUSTON (Jan. 16, 2015) – Lone Star College will be conducting information sessions for businesses interested in becoming a vendor and doing business with LSC. In 2013-14 alone, LSC spent more than $192 million to support its day to day operations.
Sessions will be hosted by the LSC procurement department and will provide insight on how LSC plans to accomplish its mission in 2015. Topics include: LSC – an overview of the procurement program, tips on how to design your path to success in working with LSC and an overview of upcoming projects related to the bond funded construction program approved by voters in November 2014.
“This really is a wonderful opportunity for businesses of all sizes to learn how to navigate the procurement procedure and bid on a wide variety of jobs,” said Bill Dodd, LSC director of purchasing. “These sessions will actively involve suppliers in efforts that will increase and expand business opportunities and business growth.”
The sessions take place Wednesday, Jan. 28, at the LSC-University Park campus and Friday, Feb. 20, at the LSC-System Office. Both sessions begin at 10 a.m. and will be followed by vendor registration.
