A Message from the Assistant Director, Office of Small Business Programs.

Small businesses (i.e., prime and subcontractors) that are given an opportunity to assist with supporting a myriad of global requirements within Department of Defense are mission enablers. Their relevant products, services, and business solutions help Department of Army focus on the top three priorities articulated by Secretary of Army Mark T. Esper via his initial message to the force on 21 November, 2017. Essentially, the top three priorities are: Readiness, Modernization, and Reform.

Collectively, the U.S. Army Medical Command, U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, and the U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity remain committed to ensuring that the various categories of small businesses receive equitable opportunities to participate and compete in the procurement process. Accordingly, once the procurement is awarded, every effort shall be devoted by the business firms to meet and exceed the expectations in accordance with the terms of and conditions stipulated in the contract/grant.

In our quest for continuous improvement, we encourage all small business concerns to compete for those procurements that coincide with their core competencies. The intent of this new website is to provide useful and transparent information to internal and external stakeholders in a user-friendly manner.

During Fiscal Years 18 & 19, we look forward to strengthening our strategic partnerships with small business prime and subcontractors, industry, and academia (i.e., Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions).

Thanks in advance for your interest. We welcome your questions, comments, and suggestions. Please feel free to communicate with us via Jerome Maultsby (jerome.k.maultsby.civ@mail.mil, 301-619-2471) and Myrsonia Lutz (myrsonia.lutz.civ@mail.mil, 301-619-8896).
