One of the first pieces of market research you should perform for your company is finding your NAICS codes. NAICS codes are North American Industry Classification System codes, that help the government figure out what kinds of products and services you offer. This also determines which industry your business falls into for size classification. NAICS codes are necessary for SAM registration, capability statements, and are also helpful in your bid match. You can easily find yours at https://www.census.gov/eos/www/naics/ Or https://www.naics.com/search/ . Remember, this is something your PTAC Counselor can assist you with too! #tiptuesday
