(USACE photo by Leon Roberts)NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 16, 2017) – Small businesses were treated to a unique event today that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District dubbed “BOOH,” which is not a scary reference to Halloween but is a cute acronym for its first annual Business Opportunities Open House.



Video Report: Business leaders were given full access to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District’s leadership and experts during the first annual Business Opportunities Open House March 16, 2017 at Tennessee State University’s Avon Williams Campus in Nashville. About 120 businesses took advantage of face-to-face interaction and the chance to ask questions about Corps’ missions, projects and future plans. (Video by Lee Roberts)

Announcements

Best Practices

Monitor procurement advertisements daily

Nashville District uses formal solicitation procedures and publishes notices for major program actions. We utilize best value, invitation for bids (sealed bid process), and negotiated procedures. 

All Federal Agencies are required to use Federal Business Opportunities to provide public notice for solicitations estimated greater than $25,000. The Nashville District occasionally posts public notices on this website for any soliciations less than $25,000.

The Army Single Face to Industry (ASFI) site provides vendors with a single point of entry to search for, view and respond to Army solicitations. AFSI provides a seamless, paperless web environment tying vendors to Army buyers.

Stay Alert

Always respond to announcements for “Sources Sought” on the FedBizOpps website that match your firm’s capabilities. Contracting Officers use this “Sources Sought” process to confirm market research in determining whether or not to set aside a requirement for small businesses.

Make it a point to attend business networking opportunities, conferences, trade fairs, and other federally supported liaison meetings in your local area. The Corps of Engineers is normally represented at such meetings and events. These meeting venues provide an excellent opportunity to meet on a one-on-one basis with small business and procurement specialists and program managers who can assist small businesses with finding information about upcoming government contracts and requirements.

Seek Opportunities as a Subcontractor

Many of DoD’s requirements are beyond the scope of a single small business. We encourage businesses to investigate potential subcontracting opportunities with DoD Prime Contractors. Check out the U.S. Department of Defense Office of Small Business Programs and U.S. Small Business Administration websites.
