The Marine Corps Systems Command Office of Small Business Programs is the gateway for small businesses. This includes veteran-owned, service-disabled, HUBZone, small disadvantaged, and women-owned small businesses. Small business and a competitive, healthy industrial base are vital to the long-term success and affordability of the Department of the Navy as well as our national security.

OSBP Mission

The Small Business Program promotes acquisition opportunities where small businesses can best support the needs of our Marines and Sailors. Through policy, advocacy and training, we foster industry innovation, technology development, and the acquisition of quality products, services and solutions from small business providers. Our vision is to ensure small businesses are the first option in the acquisition planning process.


Small Business Categories

  • Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB)
    The WOSB Federal Contract Programs goal is to expand opportunities for WOSBs by providing a level playing field for competition. The Program allows WOSBs to compete for set-aside contracts or receive sole source awards in industries where women-owned small businesses are substantially underrepresented. It also enables Economically Disadvantaged WOSBs (EDWOSBs) to compete for set-aside contracts or receive sole source awards in industries where women-owned small businesses are underrepresented.

  • Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB)
    The SDVOSB provides procuring agencies with the authority to set acquisitions aside for exclusive competition among service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns, as well as the authority to make sole source awards to service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns if certain conditions are met.
