Springerville, AZ – The Southwestern Region of the USDA Forest Service announces an informational meeting for vendors interested in providing resources to support wildfires and other emergency incidents.

The meeting will discuss the 2018 solicitations and is scheduled for Tuesday, January 9, 2018, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. MST via video teleconference at Forest Service offices throughout Arizona.

The meeting will discuss a variety of topics, including:
How to become a Federal Government vendor
How to locate and respond to solicitations through the Virtual Incident Procurement (VIPR) system

Interested vendors can obtain copies of the solicitations at https://www.fbo.gov. Type VIPR into the keyword search box and press Search to obtain a list of VIPR solicitations nationwide. Look for those from the Southwestern Region (Region 3).
