In 2008 Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall requested a new annual small business conference and trade show to assist their procurement staff in meeting goals for identifying and recruiting hard-to-find specific service and product providers.  Federal Allies Institute was formed by volunteers to accomplish this mission.

Based on the success at Fort Myer, soon Federal Allies received other unsolicited requests.  One for a federal grant-tax credit application seminar by U.S. Small Business Administration with U.S. Treasury, HHS and FDA. 

Federal Allies produced the event for free and 27 firms that attended the seminar received grants... one or more each of $240,000.

35 Federal Agencies, 2000 Participants & Nine Years Later...

Today, firms join Federal Allies to support the good works of the trade association and to take an active role in the federal contracting community, collaborate on new small business development opportunities and to take advantage of Federal Allies many federal contracting members, resources, significant expertise and influence. 

Federal Allies members strive to uphold FAI's history of success and national leadership position for federal small business advocacy.  We continue to strive to improve federal acquisition best practices and business Ethics.
