Training for Small Businesses
GSA helps small businesses stay competitive in the federal market. Online and onsite federal experts offer small businesses the training tools to succeed.
There are many credible sources of training for small business. The Office of Small Business Utilization (OSBU) provides access to small businesses seeking opportunities to partner with GSA. Agency staff has run small businesses, served in the military, and worked as contracting officers. This expertise helps small businesses succeed by teaching marketing, business strategy, partnering, sustainability, and other vital business topics.
