The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) hosted a booth and led a panel session at the 18th annual U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Small Business Forum & Expo. The event took place in Pittsburgh from April 16-18, at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown hotel.
The panel, “Doing Business with the Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory,” covered how small businesses can work with NETL on future procurement and financial assistance opportunities in support of the nation’s leading energy research. The discussion focused on informing the small business community about NETL’s mission, rules of engagement, how and what products and services are procured by NETL and more information crucial to the small business community. Helpful references regarding NETL’s acquisition representatives and points of contact were also made available. NETL Acquisition staff who participated in the event included George LeMasters, John Augustine, Ashley Reichl, Jason Efaw, Erin Kirchoff and Jennifer Scharrer, as well as Jim Wilson, Dave Staudt and Brittley Robbins.
Hosted by DOE’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization, the Small Business Forum & Expo embodies DOE’s goal of building sustainable small businesses to enable DOE to achieve its mission through innovation and creativity.
