    Hi Maureen: Good suggestion. The MAS Program Division is working on ODC policy--and a course, or training module, on that topic would be helpful. It's on our radar for FY2013.

    Can I get a copy of this training presentation?  I am meeting with the Army Deputy Assistant Secretary for Procurement, Harry Hallock.  HUBZone is the only small business goal that the Army did not meet in FY13.

      The commodity category of Building Maintenance and Operations (BMO) services has been selected as one of five new categories to be considered as a Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative. GSA, in addition to a team comprised of representatives from 18 federal agencies, is now in the process of developing a government-wide program designed to improve the way the federal government purchases and manages these types of services. This might include items such as HVAC, elevator maintenance, janitorial services, grounds maintenance and utilities.

    We are a mature SDVOSB and are pursuing the OASIS vehicle.  I am seeking a mechanism where I can reach out to other small businesses who are interested in the vehicle but are seeking a team to join.  Any suggestions?

    This special event hosted by the GSA brought an important lesson to smaller scale modufacture businesses. Many thanks to David Stieren and other MEP leaders for providing their fantastic insight to this important issue. Best regards, Jessie Coble.
