To increase the U.S. Department of Labor's utilization of all types of small businesses, the Department's Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) sponsors Small Business Vendor Outreach Sessions (VOS). These sessions offer small businesses the opportunity to market their capabilities directly to OSDBU and agency program officials and learn about potential Department procurement opportunities. Conversely, Department procurement officials can learn more about the diverse small business resources available to meet their procurement needs.
Department of Labor agencies buy a wide variety of goods and services valued at approximately $2.2 billion each year. Each DOL agency has a responsibility for procuring its own goods and services in support of the agency's mission.
VIRTUAL EVENTS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Vendor Outreach Sessions are hosted by the Department of Labor Virtually on the third Wednesday of the designated month (unless otherwise noted) from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Online registration will be available 30 days prior to each session. Follow-up meetings with agency representatives may be scheduled for a later date, if mutually agreed upon. DOL’s physical address is:
U.S. Department of Labor
Frances Perkins Building (Great Hall)
200 Constitution Ave NW (between 2nd and 3rd Streets, NW)
