Every federal agency has its own Office of Small & Disadvantaged Business Utilization Office (OSDBU or OSBU) that supports small businesses, proving information on contracting opportunities and other resources
The Dept. Health & Human Services (HHS) website includes their Procurement Forecast Data Repository , which gives vendors a ‘heads-up’ on upcoming opportunities before the official solicitation is posted to SAM.gov. While this information is subject to change or cancellation, it can be a great way to plan for the year ahead.
The agency recognizes that market research is an important part of acquisition planning, and that frequent and effective communication with industry can be one of the best ways to obtain information. A list of Small Business Staff and Specialists is also available at the site, and they encourage small businesses to send their capability statements
The site also contains a list of the names, email addresses and phone numbers of the Heads of each Contracting Activity, and Key Managers
