First Steps

In order for the DB SSC staff to properly asses your business needs, you will need to fill out a SWOT (Strength, Weakness, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis as well as a Training Plan. You can download it here and submit it to padbssc@cheyney.edu or you can request a business consultation and one will be done in person. The Training Plan will have to be signed by the business owner or a representative in order for it to take effect. DOWNLOAD THE SWOT ANALYSIS & TRAINING PLAN.

If We Can’t Help – We Know People Who Can

We help with as much as we can, but some things are out of our scope of work. If you are in need of technical assistance that we cannot provide, we recommend working with your local Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC). There are PTAC offices located across the state of Pennsylvania that can offer free services that assist small businesses to compete in the government marketplace. You can check out a full list of PTAC offices, where they are located, what counties they services, and who to contact in the link above.
