Agency Liaison Program

Agency Liaison List

The Agency Liaison Program evolved out of Executive Order 2015-11 which promotes diversity, Inclusion, and small business opportunities. The Executive Order addresses the need for better agency coordination and places a continuous focus on increasing opportunities for Small and Small Diverse Businesses.

The Bureau of Diversity, Inclusion and Small Business Opportunities provides on-going Agency Liaison Training and Technical Assistance in the following areas:

  • Integrating diversity and inclusion into an agency’s strategic plan
  • Setting agency-level SB/SDB goals and integrating those goals with agency program and procurement goals
  • Increasing the use of new best value procurement methods which consider more than low bid when awarding opportunities
  • Developing an agency SDB outreach strategy
  • Reinvigorating the SB set-aside program
  • Creating a reporting and goal setting structure that requires agencies to report SB/SDB spend data
  • Ensuring customer-friendly agency contracting environment
