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 opportunities.
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.
