Jefferson Lab provides opportunities for both large and small businesses to engage with the lab and its scientific mission.
It is Jefferson Science Associates' policy to provide maximum opportunities to small businesses, veteran-owned small businesses, service-disabled/veteran-owned small businesses, HUBZone small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses, women-owned small business concerns, and Historically Black Colleges and Universities, to the maximum level possible that is consistent with the efficient performance of its prime contract with the Department of Energy.
Jefferson Science Associates has found that working with a diverse group of suppliers and subcontractors adds tremendous value to our business, and it broadens our knowledge bases as well as our capabilities. Small Business participation and development are integral aspects of our approach to project execution on our prime contract for the DOE. Further, Jefferson Science Associates' continued support of small business subcontracting within the local community is fundamental to the business' strength, and we actively seek ways to improve our support. It is through continuous improvement, and new business opportunities, that we will be able to achieve the small business goals that DOE expects.
