The EERE Small Business Program, in support of EERE acquisition staff, is committed to obtaining the best value in goods, services, and equipment. In a cost-effective, timely manner, we seek competition to the fullest extent possible and are dedicated to the highest standards of ethical conduct throughout the acquisition process.

We support the U.S. Department of Energy's socio-economic objectives by striving to award a fair portion of our total contracts to qualified small businesses, businesses owned by socially or economically disadvantaged individuals, and woman- and veteran-owned small firms. Our procurement office purchases goods and services for use by the major programs and offices of EERE.
