Government Contracting Small Business Summit

Hosted by

George Mason University

WHEN: Thursday, September 7, 2023
  • Government Contracting Small Business Summit is Sept. 7 at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, Va. The event is hosted by George Mason University Greg and Camille Baroni Center for Government Contracting and the Small and Emerging Contractors Advisory Forum, and features keynote speaker Laura Stanton, Assistant Commissioner, Office of Information Technology Category, GSA Federal Acquisition Service; other featured speakers include David “Dave” Busigo, Senior Advisor & Rapid Innovation Fund Program Manager, Department of Defense Office of Small Business Programs

For over a decade, acquisition policy has sought to drive lower prices by favoring the broader use of category management and strategic sourcing in federal procurement. 

These initiatives, by definition, tend to whittle down the pool of eligible vendors and may therefore reduce the rate of participation by small and medium business in the industrial base. Thus, contract vehicles targeting small businesses have been a priority for agencies. 

This summit will focus on the opportunities and goals for small business seeking success in government acquisition.

Registration includes a full breakfast buffet with continuous coffee/tea stations. Also included is two hours throughout the half-day for you to network with other attendees.
