Small business owners are encouraged to attend a public meeting with Cabinet ministers Lovitta Foggo and Jamahl Simmons.

The politicians will give information about the new rules for doing businesses with the Bermuda Government at the session about the Code of Practice for Project Management and Procurement.

It will be hosted by the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation at the Cathedral Hall, Church Street, next Tuesday, from 8.30am to 10am.

According to a press release, Ms Foggo and Mr Simmons will “stress the importance of fair and equal job opportunities for small and medium-sized businesses”.

A similar meeting was held last month for Chamber of Commerce members, and earlier this week for BEDC contractors, suppliers, and vendors.

Ms Foggo, who has the responsibility for the Department of Procurement, said: “Government is committed to empowering small and mid-sized businesses to gain access to public sector opportunities.

“The Code also sets out the requirements and procedures for the procurement of goods and services for the Government that must be met and followed by all public officers.

“So, during next week’s presentation, BEDC members will receive information about key aspects of the code and their potential impact on the commercial interests.”
