Requests For Quotations

The Office of Advocacy is pleased to announce new solicitations for small business research.  Proposal solicitations can be accessed at the links below or at FedBizzOpps (www.fbo.gov).  Solicitations can be found on FedBizOpps by searching for Small Business Administration listings or the solicitation numbers below.  Proposal due dates range by topic from 7/25/17 to 8/1/17.  

The Office of Advocacy’s mission includes researching the status and contributions of U.S. small businesses in the economy.  To fulfill this task, Office of Advocacy periodically funds small business research from researchers through requests for quotations (RFQs). Areas of interest are listed below and have been selected through our outreach because they are researchable, document the status or role of small businesses, can be a catalyst for further research, or may provide policymaking insight.

Additional Information:

  • The proposal solicitations and synopses are listed on FedBizOpps. If the above links are not active, go to www.fbo.gov and search for recent Small Business Administration listings or by the solicitation number. 

 

  • All solicitations are small business set-asides.
