About this document and download

Federal small business procurement goals are set by Congress, which state that the Federal government shall direct a percentage of spending dollars to small business, and certain categories of small businesses. Congress first enacted a procurement goal in prime contracting for small business in 1988. Since then, goals have been increased, extended to include some subcontracting, and applied to certain sectors of small businesses such as socially and economically disadvantaged small business, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, woman-owned small businesses, and Historically Underutilized Business Zones.
