Doing Business with the Defense Logistics Agency

United States, Fairfax, VA - 5th August 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.

Fact of the week
US Congress instituted a "debt ceiling" in 1917 to make it easier to finance mobilization efforts in World War I, while managing the budget. Before that, Congress generally had to authorize each bond issue. The debt ceiling was raised at least 90 times in the 20th century. The last raise occurred this year in June.
