11th Annual Small Business Conference (ASBC)
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) hosted the USAID 11th Annual Small Business Conference (ASBC) conference on July 11, 2018 in Washington, DC and Visionary Consulting Partners, LLC (Visionary) was in attendance. The purpose of the USAID ASBC conference was to educate U.S. Small Businesses about USAID and to expand their partner base. Highlights of the conference included learning about USAID’s procurement process and programmatic priorities; the Lunch with Leaders (LWL) including Agency Senior Officials and OSDBU staff members; an opportunity to meet with representatives from USAID Bureaus and Offices, other Federal Agencies and Large Businesses in the Exhibit Hall; and attend breakout sessions about procurement strategies when marketing to USAID, compliance information, subcontracting, and innovative procurement methods.
