Interested in Selling to the Air Force? Check out this webinar.

Dear IOPFDA member,

We’re excited to introduce this opportunity to you!  We invite you to participate in this initiative and support your local Air Force Base as a preferred supplier.

Your business has been identified as a possible Air Force First Look program supplier. Register for the webinar to learn more about the program. To register, go here:  General Holt’s mission is to diffuse $1.8B in spend on GPC (government purchase cards) to small businesses. Small business suppliers are defined as First Look Local if located within 50 miles of a base or installation, and First Look DAF if located in the vicinity of any base or installation. Position your company to be a true FIRST LOOK for buyers to source their office supply needs.

You will be able to partner with National Diversity Veteran Small Business to support the NDVSB/AAFES eMarketplace and the Air Force First Look Program.  NDVSB is committed to bringing business opportunities and technology to small businesses to facilitate business growth. NDVSB/AAFES eMarketplace is the largest diversity, veteran, woman-owned, military-spouse owned, and small business inclusion program in the country.  

Additional partners such as AAFES (Army and Air Force Exchange Service) and the Rosie Network have helped drive the development of the NDVSB/AAFES eMarketplace.  NDVSB/AAFES eMarketplace is the only Federal eMarketplace that allows Air Force users login access through a well-recognized DoD website: AAFES Exchange HQ eCommerce site. AAFES has committed their portion of the sales will be given back to MWR programs, providing further benefit to the military community. 

The NDVSB/AAFES eMarketplace supports the Air Force First Look program founded by Major General Holt.  The Air Force First Look goal in General Holt’s words:

“Diffuse $1.8B annual GPC spend…and refocus it like a laser beam into the small business communities right outside Air Force Installation gates.”

IOPFDA is supporting the NDVSB goal by introducing our seller partners to this scalable opportunity to do business with the Federal government. IOPFDA has worked with NDVSB technical teams to create a streamlined integration process for your account. 

Please see the attached PDF for more details on this opportunity. IOPFDA and NDVSB will be hosting a webinar exclusively for IOPFDA members on Monday, September 19th. To register, go here:
