NASA Office of Small Business Programs, Where Small Business Makes a Big Difference

Regional Outreach Events

The Office of Small Business Programs hosts, biannually, an internal 2-day Agency meeting that focuses on improving NASA’s Small Business Program, culminating in the development of the Agency’s Small Business Improvement Plan (SBIP). The FY 2016/2017 SBIP consists of three initiatives to be implemented Agency-wide the following fiscal year(s), one of which is outreach. Specifically, the Agency committed to “promote small business awareness and participation, utilizing innovative techniques at nontraditional venues in geographically targeted areas, to enhance all categories of small business.” In support of this initiative, the Agency has selected two regional outreach events in the Rust Belt region of the United States for participation in FY 2018. NASA regional outreach focuses on areas where the Agency has not traditionally had a huge presence.
