This is an invitation for Women Owned Small Businesses, Women Owned Veteran Small Businesses, Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses, Veteran Owned Small Businesses, and all other business concerns interested in doing business with the Office of Construction and Facilities Management (CFM), to participate in Woman Owned Small Business Industry Day 2023.
Provide resources and networking opportunity for Women Owner Small Businesses,
Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses, and other business concerns that want to do business with the Office of Construction and Facilities Management (CFM). Initiate successful focused community engagements in support of President’s EO 13985 and the VA’s mission of delivering world class infrastructure for Veteran’s healthcare and memorial.
CFM seeks to increase its accomplishments towards the WOSB goal of 5% thru a focused outreach that encourages more WOSB to respond to solicitations.
A series of collaborative engagements seek to create economic opportunities that directly support the President’s Executive Order (EO) 13985. This EO aims to increase procurement opportunities to under-served communities. Further, this will:
• Facilitate meaningful engagement with WOSB, SDVOSB, VOSB, and other business concerns
• Explore barriers to the utilization of WOSBs in design, construction, and related support services and gain insight into stakeholder thoughts and perceptions
• Discuss barriers and solutions in contract opportunities and promote modern vendor engagement practices
