Abstract : The Department of Defense (DoD) offers two markets for small business and small disadvantaged business seeking defense contracting and defense subcontracting opportunities. The first market encompasses prime contracting opportunities; the second market encompasses defense subcontracting opportunities. This publication exclusively addresses the defense subcontracting opportunities market. The DoD encourages small business and small disadvantaged business to enter the defense subcontracting market. By entering the market, goods and services flow to strengthen national security and the defense industrial base. The DoD requires major prime contractors and subcontractors receiving contracts valued over $500,000 ($1 million for construction) to develop plans and goals for subcontracting with small business and small disadvantaged business. This requirement generates a significant subcontracting opportunity market. In FY 1990, for example, DoD prime contractors awarded $54.7 billion in subcontracts of which $21.5 billion (or 39.3%) was awarded to small business firms. This directory provides the names and addresses of DoD prime contractors and the names and telephone numbers of Small Business Liaison Officers (SBLOs), who are contractor employees responsible for the success of subcontracting programs at various plant sites. Also, this directory cites products and services supplied to the DoD.
