GSA’s Great Lakes Region (GLR), OSDBU serves as the regional liaison and advocate for small businesses within Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin.  As an advocate for small business owners, OSDBU promotes increased access to GSA’s nationwide procurement opportunities.  OSDBU provides small business counseling in the effort to help with the understanding of Federal procurement regulations and practices, determining the appropriate Federal agency buying office for their products, and acquiring pertinent data on present and/or future agency procurements and contracting opportunities.

GSA’s mission is to maximize contracting opportunities for small businesses.  in addition to assisting GSA and the Small Business Community towards fulfilling this mission, the purpose of GSA GLR OSDBU hosting this webinar is two-fold:

  • First, for potential subcontractors – this webinar provides an opportunity to obtain potential subcontract awards from a prime contractor that is committed to awarding subcontracting opportunities in the GLR.
  • Second, for the prime contractor – participating as a webinar speaker provides a platform to demonstrate commitment to fulfilling small business goal requirements as described in their GSA Prime Contract – Subcontracting Plan(s).
