SACRAMENTO, California – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District is hosting a
Business Opportunities Open House – or BOOH – an event aimed at providing business representatives valuable face-to-face time to gather information and network with Corps of Engineers’ team leaders.
This year’s BOOH is February 20 in midtown Sacramento at The Grand, located at 1215 J Street, Sacramento. On-site registration begins at 8:30 a.m. with the event starting at 9 a.m. and running until 1 p.m.
Sacramento District is projecting approximately 700 total contract opportunities in FY20 with a total estimated value of $600M. Business owners, managers, and representatives will have time to visit with a variety of Corps business program managers to discuss current and upcoming projects with Corps leaders.
This year’s BOOH will also feature a Question and Answer session with a panel of Corps subject matter experts from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., ensuring that attendees have an opportunity to have their
business-related questions answered.
“The BOOH provides an excellent opportunity for businesses to meet Corps project managers and section chiefs. It’s a great event for networking with Corps representatives and finding business prospects,” said Michelle Morales, deputy for the Small Business Section.
The Sacramento District aggressively seeks ways to increase participation by small businesses in future contract awards in order to meet assigned goals for small, small disadvantaged, historically underutilized business zones (or HUBZone) and small women-owned businesses.
Please note, however, the BOOH is not limited to just small businesses. All sizes of businesses may attend the BOOH to network with, and find working opportunities with the Corps.
