Supply Schedule

59% of all businesses are minority, female or veteran owned. Yet, historically, these businesses have been the least likely to get access to the types of economic opportunities that will allow businesses to establish themselves firmly in the market, scale quickly, and navigate economic downturns without the looming threat of closure.

Contracts and Grants Supply Schedule is an economic recovery plan that matches socially- and economically-disadvantaged small businesses with companies looking to partner with emerging and small business suppliers and subcontractors.

Patterned after the GSA Schedule, a task order-driven contract, businesses will complete an assessment of your readiness for the Federal Marketplace by evaluating your performance, experience, and pricing.  The major DIFFERENCE is that those companies that do not meet the standards are provided with business coaching designed to help them meet the eligibility requirements.
