Federal OSDBU Directors Interagency Council

Supporting Government to Embody Entrepreneurs

Welcome to the Federal Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization Directors Interagency Council ("OSDBU Council") website. The OSDBU Council is an informal organization of Federal small business program officials that comes together monthly to exchange and discuss information on acquisition methods, issues and strategies; small business program initiatives and processes; and small business related outreach events that permit their respective agencies to increase their utilization of small businesses as prime and subcontractors to meet their annual requirements for services and goods.

The OSDBU Council is led by the Directors of the Federal OSDBUs who individually work closely with the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, U.S. Small Business Administration, and Heads of Contracting for each agency along with stakeholders in the implementation and execution of the Federal small business contracting programs.

The OSDBU Council host monthly meetings and each agency rotates the responsible of hosting each meeting. If you need to reach an OSDBU Council member, access contact information for each of them via our Members page.
