Welcome to Government Contractors Association NW
OUR WHY: The small business community is greatly disadvantaged in the government contracting market. 99.7% of all US companies are defined as small sized by the SBA. Yet, only 22% of federal contracting dollars are awarded to these organizations. The disparities for women, minorities, veterans, and other such business owners are enormous. Our goal is to be an agent of change by helping companies to get their fair share of the opportunities in the government market.
Government Contractors Association, Inc. (GCA) is a national trade association comprised of commercial contractors (small & large companies) and government agencies (federal agencies, state agencies, local agencies, gov't staff, universities, non-profits, etc.).
1120 Pacific Ave. Tacoma WA. 98402
