These sessions aim to gain deeper insights into the obstacles agencies encounter when purchasing through VARs and establishing set-aside procurements utilizing Small Business Resellers and VARs, challenges faced when the challenges faced by small businesses seeking to become Value-Added Reseller (VAR) for OEMs, and the hurdles encountered by OEMs in leveraging SB IT VARs.
