On this edition of Columbia Technology Partners Ready To Prime, host Allen Scott sits down with the Director of Small Business Programs at the Defense Information Systems Agency, Sharon Jones.
They discuss a myriad of things including socioeconomic goals, expectations when working with DISA and most importantly she shares things you need to keep in mind when meeting with the Small Business Office at her agency. Some are pretty obvious, but if they aren’t top of mind, your meeting could go horribly wrong.
Jones also addresses the age-old rumor about whether it’s too late to to go after something once it’s posted on FedBiz Ops. Well is it? Find out on this edition of Columbia Technology Partners Ready To Prime.
Sharon Jones leads DISA’s efforts to contract with and utilize small businesses. She participates in and monitors the DISA acquisition process, and develops and monitors the disadvantaged business mentor-protege programs to ensure that small business, women owned, small disadvantaged business concerns and Historically Black Colleges, Universities, and Minority Institutions (HBCU/MI’s) receive a fair portion of DISA contract awards.
