VA will host an industry day March 28 in Springfield, Virginia, aimed at attracting women-owned small businesses to learn more about initiating and conducting business with VA.

The industry day, also open to service-disabled Veteran-owned small businesses and Veteran-owned small businesses, will include presentations, panel discussions and one-on-one sessions with VA program and small-business experts.

Presenters will include representatives from VA’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization, General Services Administration and the Small Business Administration.

“VA is committed to expanding contracting opportunities to women-owned small businesses,” said VA Secretary Dr. David Shulkin. “It is fitting that we hold this event during National Women’s History Month in March as we celebrate the significant contributions of women and reflect on VA’s proud history of serving women Veterans.”

The event is sponsored by VA’s Customer Advocacy and Vendor Advisory Service in conjunction with the Strategic Acquisition Center.
