Vysnova wins subcontract supporting the USAID Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU)

Vysnova Partners, Inc. (Vysnova), serving as a subcontractor to Beyond Optimal Strategic Solutions, LLC, was awarded a contract to support the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) as they work to meet the unique challenge of improving the agency’s small business utilization agency-wide, including at the USAID international Mission locations whereby the small business regulations do not apply.  Additionally, this challenge is compounded by the fact that increasing small business utilization must be balanced with competing objectives.

Vysnova is currently supporting the USAID OSDBU office delivering training to its domestic and international acquisition staff.  This comprehensive training includes tailoring the materials to the targeted audience and meeting frequently w the client to ensure that the materials are current and speaking to the changing, pressing needs of the agency.  Additionally, Vysnova facilitates meetings with USAID senior executive staff at the Mission locations to assist in acquisition planning and improving each Mission’s socioeconomic achievements.  Course surveys have illustrated the usefulness and applicability of this effort and the agency’s small business metrics are improving since Vysnova joined the project.
