Any good business owner sees opportunity in any disaster and the continuing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is currently fueling the need for specialized contracts with small to medium-sized firms. To ensure that small business owners can get to the latest information (including how to sign up for a contract), the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is using its Disaster Contracting Assistance Center (DCAC) as a hub for businesses to determine if their skills are needed to help the massive cleanup effort.
Agencies listed include EPA, U.S. Coast Guard, Department of the Interior and NOAA. The site also lists out contact information for firms looking to do business with BP.
In order to track government business, the Federal Procurement Database created a new “Gulf Oil Spill 0410” National Interest Action Value to track oil related contracts that expires on August 25, 2010. [Federal Procurement Data System – Next Generation]
With current reports claiming that the oil spill may continue for months, the DCAC is a great place to start seeking new business.
