When you calculate the size of your business to determine if you are a small business, you must include the annual receipts and the employees of your affiliates. Affiliation is determined by the ability to control. When the ability to control exists, even if it is not exercised, affiliation exists. The SBA determines affiliation in accordance with 13 CFR 121.103 in its Small Business Size Regulations.

For its ongoing comprehensive size standards review and future regulatory actions relating to size standards, SBA has developed a “Size Standards Methodology White Paper,”explaining how it establishes, reviews and modifies its small business size standards pursuant to the Small Business Act and related legislative guidelines.

It's an important responsibility, because if you cannot perform according to the terms of the contract, the government will not get the product or service it needs and you may find yourself in financial difficulty as well.

Here are some tips to guide you after a government contract is awarded.

As a contracting officer, it is important for you to understand how to apply the requirements of the HUBZone Program to help certified HUBZone small businesses receive their fair share of contracting opportunities.
