Small & Disadvantaged Business Utilization Office

Welcome to the St. Louis District Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (SADBU) Office. We are here to assist Small and Disadvantaged Business in doing business with the government by ensuring access to the St. Louis District’s contract opportunities. We provide business with the most current small business initiatives and project status.

New procedures implemented for U. S. Army Corps of Engineer solicitations require that all potential offerors register in SAM's which combined the former CCR system, CCR's Federal Registration (FedReg) module, the Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA), and the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS).  Additional website links, along with a listing of anticipated fiscal year requirements can be found under the Contracting area of our homepage.
