The General Services Administration (GSA) released opportunities and held an educational workshop event to support last month's Small Business Week campaign.

The agency said Friday that its Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization showcased federal contracting opportunities to small businesses seeking to pursue federal projects.

GSA also virtually hosted the Small Business Works: 2021 Level Up & Network Series, an event that helped small businesses learn more about federal contracting and determine pursuits that match their strengths.

“We want to ensure that small businesses from disadvantaged socioeconomic categories and communities are well-represented in the procurement process," said Robin Carnahan, GSA administrator.

The agency is helping the Biden administration grow the number of small disadvantaged businesses engaged in federal contracting by fifty percent.
