The page also debuts the new DoD Small Business Strategy of October 2019 that per Secretary of Defense Mark Esper calls for “both the Under Secretaries of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment and Research and Engineering working together to ensure the United States retains technical superiority over its adversaries.” The page also lists the Six Goals of Acquisition & Sustainment as issued by the Honorable Ellen Lord, Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment. The page is easy to navigate and allows the visitor to quickly access information that is helpful in navigating the DoD acquisition process.<br> <br> Other areas of interest include: <ul> <li>Get Started in ten easy steps, which is a roadmap to winning and performing on your contract;</li> <li>Developing a Business Relationship with DoD,</li> <li>Did You Know?, which is a compilation of facts about the positive impact small businesses have on the nation’s economy;</li> <li>Best Practices, which lists "Dos and Don’ts" for companies seeking to do business with DoD derived from acquisition professionals experienced in the procurement process;</li> <li>Industry Resources, which is a compilation of links to resources, tools and information; and</li> <li>Upcoming DAU Events</li> </ul> <strong>Go ahead and give the page a good review, maybe even try the ten step process!
