USGS Small Business Program


At the United States Geological Survey (USGS), we provide science about the natural hazards that threaten lives and livelihoods, the water, energy, minerals, and other natural resources we rely on, the health of our ecosystems and environment, and the impacts of climate and land-use change. Our scientists develop new methods and tools to enable timely, relevant, and useful information about the Earth and its processes.

Doing Business with the USGS

Scientific excellence at the USGS would not be possible without collaboration from more than 2,000 non-government, State, local, and tribal agencies and industry partners. Establishing and maintaining these essential relationships help the USGS conduct scientific research and connect with the public. Please reach out to the USGS Small Business Office to present your corporate capabilities or attend an upcoming Small Business Outreach Event.
