Office of Small Business

The St. Paul District Office of Small Business Programs is in place to ensure that small businesses have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate in St. Paul District acquisitions through contracts or sub-contracts. The district’s program provides outreach to inform small businesses of our opportunities as well as information on how to do business with us. 


The program also provides advice and assistance to the St. Paul District workforce on all aspects of the small business program. The involvement of small business concerns in our military and civil works programs is vital to the mission of the Army and to the nation’s economic prosperity. 


The St. Paul District is committed to developing small business concerns, providing procurement opportunities, training and counseling businesses for success, and establishing a broad base of capable suppliers to support the Army’s mission.
