Requests for Quotations

The Office of Advocacy (Advocacy) is pleased to announce a series of solicitations for small business research.  Proposals are due by 7:30 AM Mountain time on Friday, July 29, 2016.

The Office of Advocacy’s mission includes providing research documenting the status of small businesses and the impact of important trends. To fulfill this task, Advocacy periodically fund small business research from researchers through requests for quotations (RFQs). Areas of interest have been chosen because they are researchable, show the status or role of small businesses, can be a catalyst for further research, or may provide policymaking insight.
