Small Business (SB) Program

 

A small business concern is a business, including its affiliates, that is independently owned and operated, not dominant in the field of operation in which it is bidding on contracts and qualified as a small business under the applicable size standards in 13 CFR Part 121 (FAR 19.102).

The size standard is based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes and is currently figured by either dollar revenue or number of employees. Click here to determine your company’s NAICS code(s).

Business concerns are affiliates if, directly or indirectly, either one controls or has the power to control the other, or another concern controls or has the power to control both. The resources of affiliates ARE included when determining the size of a business concern.

All requirements between the micropurchase threshhold and the simplified acquisition thresshold ($150,000) are automatically reserved for small business and shall be set-aside unless the Contracting Officer determines there is no reasonable expectation of obtaining offers from two or more responsible small business concerns that are competitive in terms of market price, quality, and delivery.

Requirements over the simplified acquisition threshhold are set-aside for small business when there is a reasonable expectation that offers will be obtained from at least two or more responsible small business concerns offering the products of different small business concerns, and award will be at fair market prices.

Small Business Specialists advocate to maximize small business opportunities in support of the mission of their organization.
