The OSBP is dedicated to promoting the maximum utilization of small businesses to fill WHS acquisition requirements whenever practicable.

To this end, WHS offers several outreach programs designed to provide acquisition information to interested small businesses and to provide those small businesses with information and guidance on procedures for marketing to WHS, the Department of Defense, and the Federal Government in general.

The OSBP also oversees several Government programs designed to give preferential access to Government contracts to certain small businesses that satisfy particular criteria. These programs not only assist small businesses, but they are intended to encourage economic growth for the region and thereby benefit the country as a whole.
