If you’ve downloaded the form, please fax the signed & completed to 205-348-6974.  Alternately, you can scan and email your signed form.  We will route your request to the development center that serves your area. If you have questions regarding international trade or procurement (selling to the US government), please mark the appropriate boxes at the bottom of the form.

Why do I have to register?  Why can’t I just download a how-to guide?

Well, you can download our Alabama’s Answers book, the SBA Resources Guide, or our Government Contracting in Alabama guide.  Those are great places to start, but why stop with the appetizer when you have access to a buffet of small business expertise?  Companies can find an immeasurable amount of information online via Google or any other search engine.  In fact, that is where many companies start.  At some point they tire of chasing answers online, and just want to talk with someone that cares, and someone that can help.  The value in working with the Alabama SBDC Network is delivered by our certified business advisors.  Studies show that SBDC clients are able to increase their sales revenues by 15%, versus 1.7% for non-SBDC clients.  You can’t download that kind of success.
