Glenn Delgado, associate administrator of the Office of Small Business Programs at NASA, will participate in the expert panel during GovConWire’s “Navigating the Federal Marketplace, Upcoming Opportunities, and Winning Contracts” Virtual Event, on October 20th.
As NASA’s associate administrator, Delgado provides executive leadership and policy direction for developing and implementing policies and initiatives throughout the agency to ensure that all categories of small businesses are afforded opportunities to compete for Agency contracts.
Since Delgado’s arrival at NASA in fiscal year (FY) 2007, the dollars awarded to small businesses have increased significantly. In FY 2006, NASA awarded $1.94 billion directly to small businesses. At the end of FY 2014, NASA awarded $2.49 billion directly to small businesses. In FY 2012 and 2013, NASA increased its overall Small Business Administration (SBA) scorecard grade to A after receiving a grade of C in FY 2010 and a grade of B in FY 2011.
Delgado and his team have worked very closely with the Office of the General Counsel and the Office of Procurement to publish several new policies, contract clauses, and NASA Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Supplement changes that were very beneficial to the Agency’s small business program.
During GovConWire’s virtual event, Delgado will educate and inform small to midsize GovCon professionals on the current Federal Marketplace and FY21 opportunities. Brian Barnes, Associate Administrator of the Office of Small Business Utilization (OSDBU) at the General Services Administration (GSA), will be featured as the event’s keynote speaker.
