The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is responsible for the management and oversight of the small business procurement process across the Federal Government. SBA negotiates with Federal departments concerning their prime contracting goals and achievement with small businesses to ensure that small businesses have the maximum practicable opportunity to provide goods and services to the Federal government.
Further, the negotiation ensures that the Federal government will achieve not less than 23 percent to small businesses, not less than 5 percent to woman-owned small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses, and not less than 3 percent to service disabled veteran-owned small businesses and certified HUBZone small businesses. The Small Business Goaling Report documents the achievement by each department.
Small Business Procurement Scorecards provide an assessment of federal achievement in prime contracting to small businesses by the twenty-four Chief Financial Officers Act agencies. Further, it measures progress that departments are making to ensure small business opportunities remain an integral part of their acquisition of goods and services to meet mission objectives.
