SUPPORT FOR SUBCONTRACTING OPPORTUNITIES WITH SMALL BUSINESSES
NAS will maintain a strong institutional commitment to small business subcontracting.
We must demonstrate our seriousness to achieving these commitments by working together as an institution, and individually as managers, in taking an active role identifying procurement opportunities for our neighboring communities.
Managing to current budget constraints will make the task of finding small business contracting opportunities very challenging. However, we must demonstrate our commitment to our neighboring communities by meeting our small business goals. I challenge all managers and their staff to creatively seek ways to accomplish our goals.
On behalf of NAS, Acquisition Services holds the overall charter to maximize the use of small businesses while ensuring that we meet the needs of AEDC and our customers. Acquisition Services, through its Purchasing, Subcontracting and Small Business operations, is the institutional resource available to you for assistance in developing acquisition strategies that maximize small business participation without compromise to business requirements.
Thank you in advance for your assistance in maintaining and furthering a robust small business subcontracting program. Please contact Cindy Dixon, Small Business Advocate, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (931) 454-5470, for assistance including small business participation in your resource management portfolio for FY17.
