Abstract:

Providing for the Nations security requires an effective partnership between the military and the small business community. For example, in the Army alone, small business is big business. Last year the Army awarded 22.8 billion in direct contracts. Small businesses received an even greater amount in contracts with major defense firms. This conference brings together leaders of the industry small business community and the government Small Business Administration and Department of Defense to discuss timely topics, including recent changes affecting small businesses. Participants will include key Government decision makers from Washington to field commanders who conduct acquisitions. The conference provides a forum for open exchange of information and ideas between senior government officials and small business leaders. Breakout sessions will be presented on timely subjects of special interest. The agenda offers a variety of topics designed to meet the varying needs of contractors present.
