Keynote Address

The Department of the Army
Office of Small Business Programs

The success of our small business program can be directly attributed to our continued efforts to promote open dialogue with both private industry and government personnel. This is being done in several ways, most notably through our outreach and conferences that provide training to all Army acquisition personnel. Forums with government personnel provide an opportunity for us to discuss the most recent policies and procedures affecting the program with those responsible for implementing and awarding contracts. Outreach events and conferences such as this 3rd Annual B2G Conference & Expo with private industry personnel allow us to discuss how to conduct business with the Army.
