DHS Announces Small Business Event Vendor Outreach Session for October 2022

Each fiscal year (FY) the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU), as part of the Small Business Outreach Program, conducts ten sessions of 15-minute pre-arranged meetings with virtually small businesses. Business Four sessions are reserved exclusively for women-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned, small disadvantaged (including 8(a)) and HUBZone small businesses. These Vendor Outreach Sessions (VOS) are conducted by DHS Small Business Specialists (SBS) from each component and large business (counselor). Read the VOS FY 2023 Schedule link to view or download the calendar.

These sessions provide platforms for small businesses to discuss their capabilities and learn about DHS procurement and subcontracting and partnership opportunities for larger businesses.

Effective October 1, 2022, there are significant changes to the VOS program:

Small businesses will be matched to SBS and large businesses by North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code or core competency. VOS no longer has a “first-come, first-served” system. After being matched with the registration system, small businesses must request meeting(s) with the SBS or larger business of interest. Meeting requests must be accepted by SBS or larger businesses. Upon acceptance, the small business will be sent a meeting confirmation email to include a link to the virtual meeting information. Small businesses, with confirmed meetings, will be able to view their meeting dashboard in the registration system. Small businesses do not schedule a meeting without a confirmation email. Meeting space is still limited.

Meeting requests for the October 20, 2022, VOS will begin on October 6, 2022, at 12:00 p.m., Eastern Standard Time (EST) and close on October 11, 2022, at 11:59 p.m., EST. Please read the instructions on the Small Business Vendor Outreach Session carefully Homeland Security ( Be aware that requesting a meeting does not guarantee a meeting and each counselor (SBS and large business) will only accept meetings that support their requirements.

OSDBU advises companies to upload their Statement of Capability, register at before the meeting request appointment date and provide a valid email address in their My Business Matches profile that is compatible with various virtual tools (e.g. , Zoom, Microsoft Teams, WebEx, etc.). Advise that if connectivity issues occur using the virtual tool, expect to conduct the session over the telephone.

There is no fee for small or large businesses to participate in VOS. Please direct any inquiries regarding fees from third parties and any other questions regarding the VOS program [email protected]Report to
