SBA Could Make Small-biz Credit Easier to Get
October 12, 2011
Agencies could start to get credit toward their annual small-business subcontracting goals for their orders placed against multiple-agency contracts, a perk for agencies as procurement policy officials push strategic sourcing.
The Small Business Administration is considering changes to its rules that would allow an agency spending its money through a task or delivery order to chalk up the awards to its own subcontracting plans, according to a Federal Register notice Oct. 5.
Each agency has to set its own annual goal to make sure that various types of small businesses have an opportunity to participate in its contracts.
