The Weber/Morgan County Federal Procurement Outreach Program has moved from the Private Industry Council office to the Weber Economic Development Corp. office in the Chamber-Weber/Ogden.

The program, funded by a Department of Defense grant, receives in-kind matching funds from WEDCorp. and the chamber. The program consultant is Archie W. Gale, a 25-year-veteran at Hill Air Force Base, who was aware that not much of the base's business was directed to Utah companies.The outreach program was established with the mission of providing procurement technical assistance to Utah businesses so they can compete in the federal and commercial market place.

At no charge to the business, the office provides notice of government bid opportunities listed by products and services, provides access to equipment containing technical data and drawings and maintains a library of federal procurement documents, publications and handbooks.
