Business-to-government (B2G) is a term used to describe the transactions and relationships between companies and government agencies. B2G transactions can occur when a business sells goods or services to a government agency, as well as when an agency purchases goods or services from a company. The majority of B2G transactions are publicly funded by tax dollars, but private businesses also interact with government entities in order to receive permits and licenses.
