This Small Business Summit is part of a new series of regional Summits, coordinated by the Office of Economic Impact and Diversity’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization at DOE. These summits bring small business owners and Departmental small business advocates together to talk about the best ways we can partner with you- the small business community. You’ll have direct access to DOE procurement experts and small business liaisons at a local level, and link you to upcoming business opportunities.
