Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown
About Carousel - Doing Business
Our scientific excellence would not be possible without collaboration from more than 2,000 non-government, State, local, and tribal agencies. Establishing and maintaining these essential relationships helps us conduct scientific research and connect with the public on a local basis. Partnerships, acquisitions, contracts, and grants are all important facets of doing business with us.
The Office of Acquisition and Grants (OAG) is responsible for the acquisition needs of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The following is contact information for USGS Small Business Specialists. (USGS small business specialists are located in the Headquarters Office of Acquisition and Grants and our Acquisition and Grants Branches.) For more contact information select "Acquistions."
There are a variety of ways to interact with us and our science. We invite you to explore the following information about partnering with our science programs.
