The Department of Defense recently released this small business strategy document. Here’s a little bit of the note from the secretary:
“This Small Business Strategy outlines a Department-wide plan to harness the power of America’s small, innovative, and agile companies and grow their contributions to the defense mission. These initiatives will streamline efforts across DoD in order to make it easier for small businesses to work with DoD, align small business activities to sustain and expand the Department’s diverse and modernized capabilities, and reduce barriers for small businesses to help reverse the declining trend in small business suppliers. Small businesses provide our most creative entrepreneurs and most driven workers, and it is imperative that we extend them an open hand. Through implementing this strategy, we will ensure that small businesses continue to serve as indispensable partners in the mission to protect our national security.” — Lloyd J. Austin III, Secretary of Defense
