The Small Business Administration has created a program with 15 large corporations to help small businesses become suppliers to Big Business.

The program is called Supplier Connection, and it includes an online portal that allows small companies to send information about their products and services to 15 large companies: Advanced Micro Devices Inc., AT&T Corp., Bank of America Corp., Caterpillar Inc., Citigroup Inc., Dell Inc., Facebook, IBM Corp., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Deere & Co., Kellogg Co., Office Depot Inc., Pfizer Inc., UPS Inc. and Wells Fargo & Co. More companies are expected to participate.

The program is part of the Obama Administration's American Supplier Initiative, which was created to encourage companies to use small businesses as suppliers. Small businesses can take advantage of the Supplier Connection by registering on the portal at  and filling out a detailed application that includes a company profile.

Companies that have less than $50 million in annual revenue or fewer than 500 employees are eligible to use Supplier Connection. If you click on the "About the Program" tab on the portal's home page, you'll go to a page with a list of goods and services that are part of the program.

There is no cost to join the program. Small businesses that register aren't guaranteed to get sales through the program, and there won't be any requests for bids posted by the large companies that are participating. But the program is designed to help small companies be more visible.
