Regardless of your product or service it is important that you not neglect our very large secondary market. Subcontracting Opportunities with DoD Prime Contractors lists all of the major DoD prime contractors by state and provides a point of contact (Small Business Liaison Officer) within each firm. These firms negotiate goals with the contracting activities for subcontracting to small business concerns. This is a multi-billion dollar market.
We encourage you to investigate potential opportunities with the large DoD prime contractors, some of which have web sites. Many of DoD's requirements may be beyond the scope of a single small business. We encourage our prime contractors to subcontract and team with small business concerns. Also the Small Business Administration's Sub-Net is another resource to search for subcontracting opportunities.
