USACE Small Business - Who we are / Where we are

Collapse All Expand All

The District and Center Small Business Deputies work side-by-side with Contracting Officers, Program Managers, District Commanders, and Center Directors to determine which specific acquisitions should be set-aside for competitive small business award to Small Businesses, Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB), Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB), Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBzone) firms.

For example, these Small Business Deputies help find 8(a) firms and make recommendations for sole source 8(a) awards. The District and Center Small Business Deputies have the day-to-day visibility over purchases within their respective District or Center. Contracts are awarded at the District Level and Center levels.
The Division Assistant Directors are senior advisers to the nine US Army Corps of Engineers Division Commanders, Regional Contracting Leaders, and the Headquarters Small Business Office. They serve as leaders to the District Small Business Deputies. Division Assistant Directors can discuss and advise on all areas of the small business program and how to do business with USACE, but are not directly involved in recommending small businesses to contracting officers and program managers.
The Associate Director of the Small Business Program and Headquarters Small Business Assistant Directors oversee policy and overall management of the Small Business Program and staff, and are not involved in awarding contracts or recommending small businesses for contracts. The Associate Director sets the vision for the organization, and oversees implementation of policies and regulations that impact the small business program across the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Associate Director provides direction and guidance to the 60 plus small business advocates working for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Headquarters staff is not involved in recommending small firms for specific contract opportunities (this is done at the District and Center Level two levels below the headquarters). Capability briefings (introductory/informative meetings with the Small Business Professional and Contracting Officers and Project Managers when available) should be scheduled at the District and Center level. Firms that are experiencing difficulty with payments, performance, terminations, or other issues that will negatively impact the small business should reach out to USACE Headquarters for intervention when unable to resolve the issues at the District or Division level – we are here to support you!
