doing business with the government

The U.S. federal government contracts represent a tremendous sales and revenue opportunity for small businesses because:

  • The U.S. Government is the world’s largest customer
  • It buys all types of products and services in both large and small quantities
  • It is required by law to provide opportunities for small businesses
     

SMALL BUSINESS SET ASIDE

Small business set-asides are a powerful tool for helping small businesses compete for and win federal contracts. Every year, the federal government purchases approximately $400 billion in goods and services from the private sector.  When market research concludes that small businesses are available and able to perform the work or provide the products being procured by the government, those opportunities are “set-aside” exclusively for small business concerns.

There are many different types of set-asides. Some are open to all small businesses; others are open only to small businesses with certain designations.
