Small Business Opportunities

The Office of Environmental Management (EM) has a long history of support to the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Small Business Program and a strong commitment to increasing small business awards to prime contractors and subcontractors to perform EM mission-critical work. In Fiscal Years 2010, 2011, and 2012, EM awarded over $1 Billion to small businesses.

To further EM’s commitment to small business, we are providing a series of informative links pertaining to small business, including direct links to Small Business Program Managers for each EM site conducting work for the Department of Energy. We suggest that each small business with interest in working for the Department of Energy review the information provided and contact directly the Small business Program Managers with questions, capabilities, and ideas to learn how best to become involved with ongoing and upcoming work.
