Defense Health Agency

"On October 1, 2013, the Department of Defense established the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to manage the activities of the Military Health System. These activities include those previously managed by TRICARE Management Activity (TMA), which was disestablished on the same date. During the next several months, all TMA websites will change to reflect the new DHA. We appreciate your patience during this transition."

Following are additional sites that provide Small Business information beyond the opportunities that exist within the DHA:

The Small Business Administration (SBA) is the U.S. Government's "central office" for small business whose sole purpose is to assist and promote small business development, utilization and growth. Each Cabinet Department has its own "Small Business" office that further assists the Small Business Community implementing Government-wide SBA policy as an integral part of their acquisition activities. The SBA website is a great place to start to familiarize yourself with the U.S. Government's Small Business Programs, including information about how to start a small business and where to find business opportunities.
This website contains information on DoD programs that benefit small businesses and DoD business opportunities.
The System for Award Management (SAM) is the Official U.S. Government system that consolidated the capabilities of CCR/FedReg, ORCA, and EPLS. There is NO fee to register for this site. Entities may register at no cost directly from this page. User guides and webinars are available under the Help tab.
Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) is the single government point-of-entry (GPE) for Federal Government procurement opportunities over $25,000. Government buyers are able to publicize their business opportunities by posting information directly to FedBizOpps via the Internet. Through one portal - FedBizOpps (FBO) - commercial vendors seeking federal markets for their products and services can search, monitor and retrieve opportunities solicited by the entire Federal Government contracting community.
