Department of Defense Releases Small Business Strategy 

Published 1/26/2023

On January 26, 2023, the Department of Defense (DoD) published its highly anticipated DoD Small Business Strategy. This strategy seeks to promote “a strong, dynamic, and robust small business industrial base by reducing barriers to entry, increasing small business set-aside competitions, and leveraging small business programs to grow the small business industrial base.”

This strategy will guide the DoD in harnessing the full potential and capability of the small business community through three objectives: 
Objective 1: Implement a Unified Management Approach for Small Business Programs and Activities.
Objective 2: Align Small Business Activities with National Security Priorities.
Objective 3: Strengthen Engagement and Support of Small Businesses.
