PRESENTED BY
Veterans Administration

The 2017 National Veterans Small Business Engagement (NVSBE) is scheduled for December 5–7, 2017 in St. Louis, Missouri at the America’s Center. By providing an unprecedented level of access, NVSBE continues to be the most effective way to build relationships with key program and acquisition managers, Procurement Decision Makers (PDMs), and contracting specialists. Connections made during the Engagement allow Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (VOSBs) to connect with the right people to capitalize on opportunities for contract awards and subcontracting.

NVSBE directly connects VOSBs with PDMs from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), other federal agencies, state government, as well as Commercial Firms with procurement needs—and provides learning sessions to improve the capabilities of small businesses to successfully compete for procurement opportunities.

NVSBE also enables VA PDMs to engage with a large number of VOSBs in a short period of time, facilitating market research in support of meeting VA socioeconomic goals.
