Office of Small Business Programs
"Advocating for small business utilization and ensuring
equal opportunities to conduct business with the Command"
USSOCOM's Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP) is designated to advocate
on behalf of small businesses and strives to meet the goals mandated by Congress
and the Office of the Secretary of Defense, ensuring equal opportunities to conduct
business with the Command. This office should be one of a small business' first
contacts when initiating communication with USSOCOM.
The OSBP is dedicated to helping you and your business. They will explain known
requirements, help you understand who buys what within the Command, and can assist
you in locating other likely markets within DoD and developing strategies for accessing
those markets. They provide information and guidance on defense procurement policies
and procedures as well as methods for identifying prime contracting and subcontracting
The DoD and USSOCOM continually strive to increase the number of contract awards
to small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, woman owned
small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses, historically underutilized business
zones. Small businesses are encouraged to contact the office directly with questions
or requests to visit the command.
