BSP Participation Guidelines

Objective

The Business Service Provider (BSP) program offered by the Commercial Service's Office of Domestic Operations offers Indiana business service providers the opportunity to increase visibility with U.S. exporters via the web.

The Business Service Provider Directory is designed to help U.S. companies identify professional service providers to assist them in the assessment, completion, and/or financing of an export transaction.

Business service providers gain visibility for their products and services within the exporting community by participating in the directory.

Participation Guidelines & Price

A listing in the BSP Directory costs $300 for a Small to Medium Sized Company (500 or fewer employees); $600 for a Large Company (more than 500 employees) per year, and includes:

  • Brief company description (maximum 250 words)
    • Company contact information
    • Company logo (maximum 200 x 200 pixels)
    • Corporate website link

An additional listing under another category in the BSP Directory costs $100 for a Small to Medium Sized Company (500 or fewer employees); and $300 for a Large Company (more than 500 employees) per year.

Participating companies can expect to receive initial counseling on the BSP service and a navigational tour of CS. Upon receipt of BSP interest form, the CS will complete a short qualification review.
