HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, is conducting its 13th annual Small Business Forum, 9 a.m.-noon, Nov. 9, at the University of Alabama, Huntsville’s University Center.

Rebecca Vucinaj, Huntsville Center Small Business Office chief, said the event is an opportunity for small business representatives to talk with contracting officials and program managers from Huntsville Center about the Center’s programs.

"We’ll provide an overview of regulation changes over the past year that affected small business concerns and highlight upcoming procurements," Vucinaj said. "This is a great networking opportunity since small business firms with similar interests meet and often team together to go after some of the Center’s larger procurements."

Vucinaj also said larger business representatives looking for small businesses to support their subcontracting goals are also in attendance.

Vucinaj said the biggest procurement opportunities for small business concerns during FY13 will be support for the following programs: Utility Monitoring and Control Systems; Operations & Maintenance Engineering Enhancement Program; Initial Outfitting and Transition Services; Design/Build Services for Access Control Points and Energy Conservation Investment Program; Architect and Engineering Services for Medical Repair & Renewal.

Pre-registration is open for the Small Business Forum and is highly encouraged to help ensure appropriate representation of subject matter experts. Registration is free with information available on the Web at http://www.hnd.usace.army.mil/sadbu/index.aspx. If you have questions or comments, please send an e-mail to sbo-hnc@usace.army.mil.
