Interested in Introducing Your Company to the U.S Department of Labor?

On This Page

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.
