Monday Workshop In South Burlington To Help Vermont Bio-Science Businesses Identify Opportunities With The U.S. Army

BURLINGTON, Vt. (THURSDAY, May 31) -- U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy and the Vermont Procurement Technical Assistance Center on Monday will host a workshop for Vermont medical device and medical research companies interested in doing business with the U.S. Army.  The session will be held Monday morning, June 4, at the Double Tree Hotel and Conference Center in South Burlington.  Leahy said any business interested in selling a medical device to the Army, or any business involved in research and development of medical processes and equipment with Department of Defense applications, may find the free workshop useful and informative.

During the workshop, U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command’s Principal Assistant for Acquisition, Dr. Kenneth Bertram, will offer a presentation and answer questions about doing business with the Army’s medical materiel developer, which has responsibility for medical research, development and acquisition of medical logistic management.  A limited number of one-on-one sessions will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
