OSBP Capabilities


The Fort Worth District fully supports the Government’s policy of placing a fair proportion of our contracts with qualified small, small disadvantaged, women-owned, veteran-owned, service-disabled veteran owned, Historically Underutilized Business Zone and Historically Black College and Universities/Minority Institutions. We consider Small business to be the heart of the U.S. economy and a very vital part of the Corps’ procurement process. To that end Carolyn L. Staten has been appointed Deputy, Office of Small Business Programs for the Fort Worth District. Her role is to “aid, counsel, assist and protect, insofar as is possible, the interests of small business concerns in order to preserve free competitive enterprise, to ensure that a fair proportion of the total purchases and contracts or subcontracts for property and services for the Government be placed with small business enterprises.”

  • Do I have the capacity to accomplish the work in the required time and within the allocated budget?
