OSDBU hosted a Small Business Day on August 5, 2013. Secretary Anthony Foxx, and OSDBU Director Brandon Neal, welcomed over 300 participants representing various small businesses and prime contractors from across the country. The event included a presentation by A. John Shoraka, Associate Administrator of Government Contracting and Business Development at the U.S. Small Business Administration. During his presentation he highlighted new small business initiatives that support thousands of small businesses every year as they compete for over $500 Billion in federal prime contracts and billions more in subcontracts.
Small businesses participated in an active networking session with state and local transportation representatives, DOT prime contractors, and Small Business Specialists from the various DOT Operating Administrations. The networking session enabled small businesses to market themselves and learn more about potential contracting opportunities.
