Small Business Participation

Posted on

Small BusinessWhile the mandatory small business  preference  programs in FAR Part 19 do not apply to orders placed against GSA Schedule contracts, orders with small businesses like Defense Investigators Group, may be credited toward an ordering activity’s small business goals (see FAR 8.405-5).

Small Business Administration (SBA) policy allows agencies to include in their procurement base and goals, the dollar value of orders expected to be placed against GSA Schedule contracts. Actual orders placed against Schedule contracts may be reported as accomplishments and credited toward ordering activities’ small business goals.
