Small Business Overview

Small businesses are the engine of our economy and a vital part of the Department of Defense procurement process.  With our ever-changing needs, all small business socioeconomic categories face new and different challenges. It is the Baltimore District's constant goal to maximize the use of small, small disadvantaged (to include Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions), HUBZone, women-owned and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses to maintain a high degree of readiness, provide economic security and advance the technology of the United States.


Mission Statement: The Baltimore District will strive to be stewards of the taxpayer's dollars by balancing mission accomplishment and the Government's responsibility of socioeconomic development by maximizing opportunities for small businesses.  

Our Commitment: The Baltimore District fully supports the national policy of providing small, small disadvantaged businesses, HUBZone small businesses and women-owned small businesses the opportunity to provide supplies and services which are within their capability. We are committed to the worthwhile and varied socioeconomic programs and through teamwork, we will continue to help support this great nation into the next millennium.
