Marketing Mondays: Doing Business With the Treasury Department

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 Treasury Department’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (ODBU) helps small businesses of all types on how to pursue contracts with the agency. The agency’s Forecast of Contract Opportunities includes projections of anticipated contracts above the Simplified Acquisition Threshold where small businesses  may be able to perform either directly or as a subcontractor.

Vendor Outreach Sessions (VOS) are pre-arranged 15-minute appointments with Small business specialists, where companies can discuss their capabilities and learn of potential procurement opportunities.
