Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP)

Mission

Mid-Atlantic Regional Council Logo

The Council serves its member by offering a forum to learn about successful small business utilization techniques, quick dissemination of legal and regulatory changes and other information, and an opportunity for collective action to affect small business issues. No other training forum or organization offers this type of small business support and most Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP) Directors and Small Business Specialist(s) (SBS) consider the council a vital component of their overall mission-related efforts.

The MARC provides the following principle benefits for its members:

  • Easy access to information concerning Federal acquisition and small business programs.
  • Opportunities to network with other professionals sharing common goals.
  • Opportunities to provide input on proposed public and private policy and small business-related initiatives.
  • Opportunities to support small business outreach efforts.
  • Membership in a group that serves as a strong advocate for small business.
