    27. Small Business Set aside ??? All procurements valued between $3,000 and $100,000 The contracting officer shall set aside any acquisition over $100,000 for small business participation when there is a reasonable expectation that (1) offers will be obtained from at least two responsible small business concerns; and (2) award will be made at fair market prices.

    28. What is the 8(a) Program??? The 8(a) Business Development (BD) Program? The SBA's 8(a) BD Program, named for a section of the Small Business Act, is a business development program created to help small disadvantaged businesses compete in the American economy and access the federal procurement market.

    29. The 8(a) Program The applicant firm- Must be a small business, Must be unconditionally owned and controlled by one or more socially and economically disadvantaged individuals who are of good character and citizens of the United States, and Must demonstrate potential for success.

    30. Federal Contract Benefits – There are four types of 8(a) contract opportunities: Competitive general policy if > $3M for non-manufacturing Sole Source general policy if < $3M for non-manufacturing Full and open- competitive contracts can be awarded with a price evaluation adjustment. The offer of the Small Disadvantaged Business Concern must not be 10 percent higher than the offer of a non-small business. Subcontracting- All subcontracting plans for large business Federal contractors must include Small Disadvantaged subcontracting goal.

    31. What is a HUBZone ??? HUBZone Empowerment Contracting Program The term HUBZone comes from the phrase, "Historically Underutilized Business Zone“ The HUBZone Empowerment Contracting Program is designed to stimulate economic development and create jobs in urban and rural communities by providing federal contracting preferences to small businesses. These preferences go to small businesses that obtain HUBZone certification by being located in a HUBZone designated area or employing staff who live in such an area.   

    32. Federal Contract Benefits – There are four types of HUBZone contract opportunities: Competitive: Contracts can be set-aside for HUBZone competition when the contracting officer has a reasonable expectation that at least two qualified HUBZone small business concerns (SBCs) will submit offers and that the contract will be awarded at a fair market price. Sole-source: HUBZone contracts can be awarded if the contracting officer determines that: only one qualified HUBZone SBC is responsible to perform the contract, two or more qualified HUBZone SBCs are not likely to submit offers and the anticipated award price of the proposed contract, including options, will not exceed $3 million for a requirement within all non-manufacturing NAICS codes. Full and open competitive contracts can be awarded with a price evaluation preference. The offer of the HUBZone small business must not be 10 percent higher than the offer of a non-small business. Subcontracting: All subcontracting plans for large business Federal contractors must include a HUBZone subcontracting goal.

    33. Service Disabled Veteran Owned SB ??? (a) The Veterans Benefit Act of 2003 (15 U.S.C. 657f) created the procurement program for small business concerns owned and controlled by service-disabled veterans. (b) The purpose of the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Program is to provide Federal contracting assistance to service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns. Status as a service-disabled veteran-owned small business concern is determined in accordance with 13 CFR Parts 125.8 through 125.13.

    34. Service Disabled Veteran Owned SB ??? A Contracting Officer may set aside a procurement for SDVOSB competition – (1) Offers will be received from two or more service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns; and (2) Award will be made at a fair market price. (Sole source)

    35. Subcontracting OpportunitiesStatutory requirements • Any contractor receiving a contract for more than the simplified acquisition threshold must agree in the contract that small business, veteran-owned small business, service-disabled veteran-owned small business, HUBZone small business, small disadvantaged business, and women-owned small business concerns will have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate in contract performance consistent with its efficient performance. • It is further the policy of the United States that its prime contractors establish procedures to ensure the timely payment of amounts due pursuant to the terms of their subcontracts with small business, veteran-owned small business, service-disabled veteran-owned small business, HUBZone small business, small disadvantaged business, and women-owned small business concerns.

    36. $550,000 Subcontracting $1,000,000 In negotiated acquisitions, each solicitation of offers to perform a contract or contract modification, that individually is expected to exceed $550,000 ($1,000,000 for construction) and that has subcontracting possibilities, shall require the apparently successful offeror to submit an acceptable subcontracting plan. If the apparently successful offeror fails to negotiate a subcontracting plan acceptable to the contracting officer within the time limit prescribed by the contracting officer, the offeror will be ineligible for award.
