Engaging with U.S. small business community
As part of the Supply Chain Management Center's proactive external engagement activities, the SCMC hosted an exhibit booth and reached out to small businesses and industry partners May 22-24 during the U.S. Department of Energy's annual Small Business Forum and Expo, which took place at the Westin Galleria.
More than 1,000 participants represented all levels of related federal agencies, prime contractors, and the small business community. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry delivered general session remarks, and awards were presented to a variety of small business partners from across the country.
Beyond the SCMC booth and a presentation by Scott Bissen, SCMC director, SCMC commodity managers visited with current and potential suppliers.
"There's no substitute for meeting people face-to-face and showing them how we can work together, grow their business, and enhance the performance of the enterprise," said Bissen.
