GULFPORT— Beginning in September, Roy Anderson Corp, the Mississippi Development Authority, the Surety & Fidelity Association of America and the South Mississippi Contract Procurement Center will present the Model Contractor Development Program in Gulfport.
The Model Contractor Development Program is designed to teach small construction contractors the good business practices they need to improve their company’s operations, increase their bonding capacity and help them take advantage of the ongoing construction boom in Mississippi.
The Model Contractor Development Program is being offered free of charge and will include 10 sessions. Each session will be held at Roy Anderson Corps corporate office on Reichold Road in Gulfport from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. each Tuesday beginning Sept. 29 and ending Dec. 1.
Roy Anderson Corp also hosted this same event in 2007 and in 2008. To date, close to 100 companies have graduated from this learning series hosted at Roy Anderson Corp.
The Model Contractor Development Program is open to all small construction contractors. The program requires that companies must enroll in the Mississippi Contract Procurement Network system and that a representative of each contractor must agree to attend no less than eight of the 10 sessions.
