Webinar teaches small-business owners how to contract with DLA

By DLA Public Affairs


The Defense Logistics Agency did $15 billion worth of contracts with small businesses in fiscal 2018 as it procured spare parts, food, fuel, uniforms, medical supplies, construction material and more for military and federal customers. Small-business owners who are new to federal procurement can learn how to partner with DLA through a monthly webinar that outlines contracting opportunities with various supply chains.

The webinar, created by the DLA Office of Small Business Programs, includes details on DLA’s mission, each DLA major subordinate command and what they buy, as well as an outline of Procurement Technical Assistance Centers that provide services ranging from guidance on the bidding process to tips for using federal procurement systems.

The free, one-hour session is designed to help Small Business Development Centers, clients of the Counselors to America’s Small Businesses Association, PTAC counselors and clients, and the small business community.
