Example of Follow-up from President Obama visiting Cleveland: US Department of Energy Business Opportunity Sessions (BOS)

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Thu, 02/24/2011 - 01:58.


February 22, 2011, President Obama and senior staff visited Cleveland - joined by Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu - to discuss how the Federal government may help small business grow... including in the energy sector. As an example of what small business owners may expect as next steps, you should subscribe to relevant U.S. government mailing lists like for the US Department of Energy Business Opportunity Sessions (BOS) - see link below. If you own a Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) interested in energy, and government support, the following message is FOR YOU! This should be an exciting session and opportunity.

As you'll see, if you are a Small Disadvantaged Business, HUBZone;8(a), or Service-Disabled Veteran Owned small business, the DOE has specific Energy Business Opportunity Sessions (BOS) for you as well - subscribe for updates and good luck!

Dear Small Business Stakeholder:

The US Department of Energy Business Opportunity Sessions (BOS) are outreach events which connect Federal acquisition and program officers with small businesses. BOS activities stimulate small business participation in Department of Energy (DOE) contract and other mission-supporting opportunities.

On March 3, 2011, the Agency is holding its next BOS, targeted for Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB), see attachment. If you are interested in attending this BOS (as a WOSB), or in being apprised of future outreach events, please email to BOS [at] HQ [dot] DOE [dot] Gov your capability statement, and in the subject line include the socio-economic status of your firm (Women-owned; Small Disadvantaged Business; HUBZone;8(a); Service-Disabled Veteran Owned). This helps us populate our events with attendees that reflect the sessions’ rotating themes and foci.

Welcoming any questions on this, and looking forward to your response to the above.

Respectfully yours,
