Doing Business with the Defense Logistics Agency

United States, Richmond, VA - 15th July 2003
Many small businesses consider themselves too small, or the red tape too thick, to bid on contracts with the government. The government does a large amount of business with small companies and although the process is not simple, small businesses can compete.

The Defense Logistics Agency, in an effort to increase small business participation as part of its industrial base, is offering a free one-day course to small businesses designed to help them better compete. The course will provide small businesses with an overview on how to do business with DLA and facilitate competing more effectively on DLA procurement opportunities.

The class is free but attendees will need to pay for travel and lodging, if necessary. For more information on signing up and questions about location and facility, please contact the site nearest you, listed below.
