Industry Day Events

In support of small businesses, the White House has requested that all Federal agencies focus outreach efforts on small business socioeconomic categories where agency goal performance is low. To meet this request, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as part of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014–2015 NASA Small Business Improvement Plan, instituted an initiative focused on increasing outreach in the following low-performing socioeconomic areas: Service-Disabled Veteran–Owned, Women-Owned, and Historically Underutilized Business Zones.

Each hosting Center and the other NASA Centers are required to assist in the execution of these Industry Day events. Industry Day support includes attendance and active participation by the hosting Center’s Small Business Specialists (SBSs), Technical Advisor(s), Technical Coordinator(s), and Office of the Chief Technologist representative. All companies are welcome to attend. However, the Agency’s objective is to have a minimum of 50 percent of industry attendees from the targeted socioeconomic category. In order to provide the maximum networking experience for small business owners, each Center will invite its current top large businesses.

The NASA Office of Small Business Programs and the NASA SBS Council, along with their respective Centers, will host industry events for the aforementioned targeted socioeconomic categories each fiscal year until the Agency meets its goals.

Thank you for your continued support of the NASA small business program.
