Small business workshops

The Iowa DOT partners with Iowa State University's Center for Industrial Research and Service (CIRAS) to hold monthly vendor workshops to help small business understand how to sell goods and services to Iowa State University and the state of Iowa. CIRAS provides assistance to businesses throughout the state and country on how contract at the federal, state and local level.

At the end of the presentation sessions, purchasing agents from ISU and the DOT as well as a representative from CIRAS are on hand to answer questions.

In addition to these workshops, CIRAS holds sessions throughout the year to help small businesses. See the schedule for Center for Industrial Research and Service (CIRAS) sessions.
