GSA is reaching out to encourage Native American businesses to become active partners in selling products and services to the federal government.
With increased federal support for the GSA Native American Business Center (NABC), the creation of a new business development task force, and extensive national and regional outreach, GSA hopes to leverage more opportunities in the federal contracting process for American/Alaska Natives.
The GSA effort is led by Administrator Lurita Doan who met with business and government leaders at the GSA/Native American Business Community Forum last week.
GSA has a strong history of supporting Native American small business owners at its national headquarters and 11 regional offices throughout the United States. GSA offers small business development workshops for Native American small business owners, maintains close ties to the National Congress of American Indians, and is also a partner in the National Reservation Economic Summit and American Indian Business Trade Fair.
