All Arlington-based businesses are eligible to receive business development resources and technical assistance through the BRAC Transition Center.
Beyond the direct effects to leased office space and DoD civilian workers, BRAC will also have an impact on retailers, aspiring entrepreneurs, small business owners, government contractors and nongovernmental companies that support BRAC'd DoD agencies and their workers. As a retailer, business owner, contractor or aspiring entrepreneur in Arlington or the D.C. Metro region, the next few years will be a time of change, transition, exploration and examination of business practices.
Are you and your business prepared to manage this transition? Ask yourself:
- Will my current clients/customers relocate as a result of BRAC? Do I know when they will leave?
- How do I plan for new potential clients that will the office space vacated by DoD?
- Are there BRAC-related business development opportunities?
- What services, resources and assistance are available to help my business manage this transition?
