|The TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) engages in a wide variety of procurement activities that may be of interest to small businesses. There are opportunities to subcontract to many of our large Managed Care contracts. There may be chances to form teams with some of our other currently active contractors, whether in the realm of Information Management Technology or Managerial and Programmatic Support. Of course, there are also opportunities for your company to win direct awards as well. For additional information on marketing to AM&S download the “How to Market to AM&S” Guide.

Before determining which, if any, of these possibilities are the best course for your business you should have a thorough understanding of what exactly the TRICARE Management Activity is, the environment in which we exist, and the types of services and commodities we purchase. Additional sites, such as the following, provide Small Business information beyond the opportunities that exist within the TRICARE Management Activity:
