brief view of the conomic picture of the business, list the principal business
activity, and detail the management organization (Minority and Small Business
Coordinator, Minority and Small Business Liaison Officer and Support Staff). It
should also identify unique aspects of the particular kind of business that the
Plan covers and should specify how these aspects will impact on or Influence
the (SBSDB) Plan.

Minority and Small Business Council Chairman at each facility must be thoroughly
familiar with the format and its use.

of a specific Minority and Small Business Plan. Special attention should be
given to Section IV through VIII because they will contain brief descriptions of
