He and his team of small business professionals assist teams in locating innovative, cost-saving solutions that small businesses can provide.
Since they work with more than 700 businesses a year, Schultz says the individuals in this office must be knowledgeable and well-rounded individuals.
“It’s important for small business professionals to understand the capabilities of small businesses so they can clearly articulate what the small business industry can provide,” said Schultz. “They’re not only helping the acquisition teams, but they’re also meeting with small businesses to understand their capabilities and concerns.”
One of Schultz’s goals is to leverage the knowledge and expertise that the office has and transfer that knowledge to the program offices and contracting experts.
“We’re here to maximize innovative, agile, and efficient small business solutions to the world’s greatest Air Force,” said Schultz.
