FMCC Small Business Roundtable
The Fort Myer Construction Corporation Small Business Roundtable is intended to foster and promote professionalism and integrity through a series of roundtable meetings designed for small business leaders aiming to enhance their skills and expand their professional network. Participants are introduced to local, federal, and private industry professionals, as well as contract procurement and city council officials. They are provided information on current and upcoming procurement opportunities, as well as prime and subcontracting opportunities. The roundtable features guest speakers from the government and private sector who lead workshops on partnering, financing, bonding, relationship building, subcontracting opportunities, business procurement opportunities, and more. Fort Myer provides unique and unparalleled access to its own Estimating Division, accountants, attorneys, and other internal professionals to foster advice and counseling.
As a result of the roundtable, Fort Myer, as well as other entities, has entered into contracts and business relationships with many of the participants, variously operating as either subcontractors or even prime contractors on different projects. We are proud to say that our FMCC Small Business Roundtable members are networking and developing business relationships that strengthen their capacity and deepen the pool of qualified and quality businesses serving the Greater Washington, DC community.
