Small Business Programs and Supplier Diversity

Since our founding in 1965, Abt Associates has partnered with small businesses countrywide, not only to bolster economic growth among these companies but also because we have found many to be exceptional partners. We have had the privilege of affiliating with all facets of the small business community, working with firms owned by women, able and disabled veterans, Alaska natives and Indian tribes, historically black universities and by companies which are classified as socially and economically disadvantaged businesses including HUBZone businesses. Over that time, we have partnered with 3,300 small businesses and consultants. 

Our work provides opportunities in both domestic and international markets for those independent firms and consultants who have the skill sets we are seeking. The federal government and Abt recognize that support to small business is a cornerstone of continued economic growth for our country. 

Our Partner Registry Database allows small businesses to register with Abt. Join our network of Bold Thinkers. Abt Associates routinely partners with individual consultants, businesses of all types and sizes, universities, nonprofits, and other organizations to deliver high quality and innovative solutions to our clients. If you are interested in partnering with us on current work or potential future opportunities, create a profile in our Partner Registry and tell us about your technical and subject-matter expertise. 

Working together, we can improve the quality of life and economic well-being of people worldwide.
