GSA’s Northeast and Caribbean Region’s Small Business Utilization Center (SBUC) advocates for Small, Small Disadvantaged, Veteran, Service-Disabled Veteran, HUBZone and Women Business concerns. The SBUC serves as the regional liaison and first point of contact for business in New York, Northern New Jersey, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. As the regional advocate for small businesses, the SBUC’s goal is to provide information about various government contracts and procurement opportunities.
The SBUC provides support and assistance in planning, implementing and coordinating programs to help the Region meet its socio-economic contracting goals.
The center is especially interested in locating and assisting these entities (links to Small Business Association Pages): small, small disadvantaged, Section 8(a), woman-owned small, HUBZone small, veteran-owned small, and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses.
The center’s small business assistance team is proactive in ensuring that small businesses have the maximum practicable opportunity to compete for and receive government contracts. To ensure inclusion of regional small businesses, the SBUC:
- Conducts seminars on “Doing Business with GSA”
- Develops and administers small business programs designed to nurture business opportunities and promote business growth
- Explains how to access and navigate Federal Business Opportunities and other e-Tools
- Provides information on the agency’s procurement opportunities
- Supplies information, resources, and counseling to potential vendors.
