VA Office of Small & Disadvantaged Business Utilization

Mission, Functions, and Activities

The VA OSDBU mission is to enable Veterans to gain access to economic opportunity by leveraging the federal procurement system and expanding participation of procurement-ready small businesses. 

This mission will be achieved by changing how Veteran-owned and other small business concerns, that are procurement-ready, gain access to economic opportunities. Current transformation efforts will increase awareness, reduce risk, enhance access, improve procurement mechanisms, and promote better performance in meeting small business goals.


Within the next five years, OSDBU will transform how small businesses achieve economic success by leveraging improved technology and business processes to enable procurement-ready small businesses to address relevant procurement requirements in both the federal and commercial markets.
