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.


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.
