Small businesses can find many areas for doing business with the U.S. Marine Corps, if they research the field properly, says the head of a Corps small business office. Kyle Beagle, associate director of Marine Corps Systems Command (SYSCOM) Office of Small Business, told attendees at a virtual meeting of the AFCEA Small Business Committee that the Corps will be looking to boost contracting with small businesses in the coming year. But companies must be prepared to work with the Marine Corps early in the process if they are to be a contractor.
“Do your homework,” Beagle told audience members. “Know who you’re trying to target in the Marine Corps, and know what area you’re trying to target.”
