Direct Access Program

Direct Access Programs (DAP) offers a unique opportunity for Veteran Owned Small Businesses (VOSBs) to build partnerships, maximize networking, and gain access to procurement decision makers through Direct Access Events (DAEs).  DAEs provide access to procurement opportunities through structured, screened and periodic events which are comprised of a business opportunity session, networking tables, and learning sessions.

Value of DAP

Learn about federal and commercial opportunities specific to your industry
Take part in Networking Roundtables to personally demonstrate and pitch your business
Network with other businesses to discover subcontracting and teaming opportunities
