Small Biz Trying to get Piece of DoD Procurement Pie
January 24, 2012
Small companies wanting to do business with the Pentagon have to find new ways of getting contracts because of tighter budgets.
Fortunately for small businesses, the Defense Department is re-emphasizing the need for the department to meet small business contracting goals, said John Shoraka, acting associate administrator for government contracting and business development at the Small Business Administration.
Federal agencies are required to establish contracting goals, with at least 23 percent of all government buying targeted to small firms, according to SBA.
