Doing Business at Fort Meade

Navigating the layers necessary to do business with the government can be both frustrating and rewarding. In West Anne Arundel County, it is particularly confusing, as Fort Meade is not a single entity – the installation serves as landlord to almost 100 tenant agencies, most with their own individual procurement processes.

To help guide businesses interested in pursuing government contracting opportunities, the West County Chamber has formed a Government Contractors Guild, with representatives from all major product/service areas available to assist you in your efforts. For more information, contact the chamber office.
