ALBANY, GA (WALB) - If you own a business and want to increase your customer base, your best client may be Uncle Sam. As part of small business week, the Albany Chamber of Commerce held a seminar about how the government buys goods and services and how businesses can get in on the action.

Pat Gartland said, "The federal Government is the biggest client in the world and they have every need that the common household has, whether it be paper, computers, oil and gas, everything else. They use all these materials."

Some of the key components in dealing with the federal government: provide a quality product or service, make sure you always deliver on time and make sure your price is competitive.
