The Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP) at the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has successfully influenced the contracting and program management staff to adjust their acquisition strategies to allow for two high-dollar acquisitions that were previously performed by large businesses to be set aside entirely for small business. Actions such as this have allowed USSOCOM to surpass its small business contracting goals and achieve the highest percentage of small business awards in Command history.
