The Department of Small and Local Business Development

The Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD) works with the Office of Contracting and Procurement (OCP) to match small, disadvantaged businesses with contracting opportunities with the DC government and elsewhere. DSLBD also fosters economic development of DC's small business community through technical assistance, commercial revitalization initiatives, business opportunities and access to capital seminars, conferences, exhibits, and outreach forums, among other programs.

The Enhanced Business Information Center (e-BIC), an initiative of the DSLBD, DC Public Library, and the SBA, is located in the heart of downtown DC at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library. The e-BIC offers training, counseling, access to computers and business software and office space for business-client meetings.
