    The Office of Small Business Utilization recently launched a series of videos I'd like to share.  The new "Doing Business with GSA" video series gives small businesses the opportunity to learn more about doing business with the federal government on their schedule.  GSA has a substantial commitment to small businesses, as well as businesses owned by veteran, women, minority, and disadvantaged entrepreneurs.  Expanding small business opportunities at GSA is one of the agency's top priorities.
