'Fiscal year 2012 is the first time the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) category hit its government-wide prime contracting goal.'

Centurion Research Solutions announced the release of a report that analyzes the SBA FY12 Small Business Goal Scorecards for the federal government and its agencies. This report identifies which agencies are passing or failing their FY12 goals, as well as their pass/fail history for small business primes and subcontracting activity. Small businesses can use this information to identify federal contracting opportunity targets and help these agencies reach their goals.
Some key highlights include:
- The government is required to award 23% of its contracting dollars to small businesses. The government has not reached this goal in the last 13 years.
- 17 of 24 agencies met or exceeded their FY12 Small Business Prime Contracting goals.
- FY12 is the first time the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) category hit its government-wide prime contracting goal.
- More prime contracting dollars have been awarded to Woman-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) since FY11. Centurion attributes this to the SBA ruling, modified in May 2013, which expanded the opportunities for WOSB and Economically Disadvantaged Woman-Owned Small Businesses (EDWOSB).
