ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Rather than setting up a separate small business procurement program in house, the city commission is considering giving the existing Georgia Tech small business office $100,000 to help facilitate programs with those interested in bidding on city bids.

"This is, in my opinion, a good transition to turn it over to an entity that can do a good job with it and I'm excited, after talking with the people from Georgia Tech that they're going to be able to carry this thing a lot further than we were able to carry it," said Mayor Dr. Willie Adams.

The small business procurement program will offer specialized training and counseling for small businesses. It will also give participants information on how to bid on state and federal contracts.
