NASA Seeks Contracts with Wide Range of Regional Small Businesses at July Conference
Ohio Development Services Agency
In 2017, NASA spent more than $2.7 billion contracting dollars with small businesses, 16.5 percent of its total contracting budget. NASA is looking to expand its small business contracting even further this summer, seeking out new partnerships with a wide range of goods and services providers based in Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Kentucky at a two-day conference.
The first-ever, one-time event, “Reaching High – Aerospace Business Matchmaker,” scheduled for July 17-18 at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, is a partnership among NASA and Procurement Technical Assistance Centers in Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Kentucky.
The first day of the conference will be primarily educational, as participants hear from NASA officials about the goods and services the agency needs and how businesses can qualify as vendors. On the following day, businesses can meet one-on-one with representatives from NASA, as well as other agencies from all levels of government and NASA prime contractors, for millions of dollars’ worth of contracting opportunities in aerospace industry services.
These opportunities will be available to businesses in a large variety of industries, providing goods and services, such as mechanical and electrical engineering, IT infrastructure services, building maintenance, medical services, office supplies and equipment, office administrative services, testing laboratories, apparel, security and much more.
