Tina Bagapor-O’Harrow started the topic Small Business Utilization Goals; Fact or Friction? in the forum Acquisition, Contracting, Procurement 7 years, 1 month ago
Thursdays small business panel at the tower club covered by WBJ. I didn’t go to the event, but I would be interested in thoughts about what is being done to achieve these contracting goals and wich agencies and big contracting shops are serious about it?
My two cents: Kevin Boshears has made great strides in DHS to reach small business goals, but most agencies don’t. Large contracting shops will follow suit only if achieving these goals stops being the exclusive dominion of the toothless OSDBU offices whose measure of success has become more about how many small businesses are on their rolls than how much real business is being done with them.
