Small Business Development

Sky Harbor at Night

The City of Phoenix Aviation Department is a committed and proactive partner to the small business community. We do this through the development and implementation of programs and services designed to increase contracting, professional services and procurement opportunities with the goal of increasing small business competitiveness and capacity at Sky Harbor International Airport and Goodyear and Deer Valley General Aviation Airports.

The Small Business Development team, established to ensure that local, small, historically and underutilized businesses have every opportunity to do business with the Airport, serves as a resource for all the divisions within the Aviation Department. Our mission is:

To lead a cooperative effort to enhance the Aviation Department’s small business participation through strategic outreach, innovative processes, education and training, strong community involvement and interdepartmental partnerships.
