What is the Small Business Subcontracting Program?

The Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Small Business (SB) Subcontracting Program focuses on increasing subcontracting opportunities for SB through establishing regulations, processes and procedures to ensure small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses, HUBZone certified small businesses, veteran-owned, service-disabled-veteran-owned, and woman-owned small businesses receive maximum practical opportunities in Federal government subcontract awards. The SBA’s Subcontracting Program website provides information to assist all involved in the success of the Subcontracting Program.

What is the Subcontracting Program's Mission?

The mission of the program is to ensure that domestic small businesses receive a “maximum practical opportunity”, which is a fair and equitable opportunity, to compete for and receive subcontracts resulting from Federal prime contracts. The purpose is also to ensure that other than small businesses (OTSB) understand and is in compliance with the subcontracting post-award legislations, regulations, processes, and procedures.
