APRI staff provided research support to the Ohio Federal Military Jobs Commission as they met and developed their final report on strengthening the state's federal military jobs sector. APRI primarily provided research and authorship for Chapter 3 of the report, titled Expand Small Business Federal Contracting. Chapter 3 discusses the strategy to enhance communication and collaboration among State entities in order to create statewide response to the federal initiatives that make contracts available to small business and veteran-owned businesses. Placing Small Business Development Centers and Procurement Technical Assistance Centers on a common information technology netowrk and educating small businesses on how to do work for the federal government can help accomplish the Commission's strategy. Chapter 3 also includes a recommendation for a state-level matching opportunity for Small Business Innovation Research.
