Small Business Opportunities
Welcome to GSA’s Regional Office of Small Business Utilization (OSBU). We are advocates for small, small disadvantaged, veteran, service-disabled veteran-owned, HUBZone, and women business owners located in the Southeast Sunbelt Region (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee). It is our mission to promote increased access for small businesses to GSA’s nationwide procurement opportunities.

- constantly researching and developing new ways to educate,
- sponsoring and developing companies through free training
- offering low-cost networking events, and
- counseling for business development.
