Agencies Propose Rule Change to Cut Burdens on Small Business

Dec 5, 2018

The Department of Defense, the General Services Administration, and NASA have proposed a rule change to the Federal Acquisition Regulation that would standardize the limitations on subcontracting across agencies while reducing the burden on small businesses contractors.

The proposed rule change, issued in the Federal Register December 4, would adopt the Small Business Administration’s approach to addressing requirements made by the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act that limited the percentage of the contract that awardees could spend on a subcontractor.
