Every potential government contractor must determine if they qualify for government contracting. These 477 government contracts set in California are specifically set-aside for Total Small Businesses. The United States Federal Government has created a number of federal set-aside to encourage small businesses to register in SAM and win government contracts. The Small Business Act was designed to help smaller, economically disadvantaged/socially disadvantaged businesses compete for available government contracts. It was an effort to help small businesses create more of a foothold in the federal marketplace. The government has set-aside 23% of its government contracting dollars to be devoted solely to small business government contractors.
Businesses can find out if they meet the Total Small Business standards by researching the SBA’s Size Standard Tool. Every industry has a different size standard according to industry. The SBA uses North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes to determine if a business is considered a Total Small Business. US Federal Contractor Registration provides free Federal Marketplace Evaluations to help businesses discover available contracts, scope out their competition, learn about federal set-asides and determine a business’s Industry Size Standard. Businesses in California can find out their business eligibility standard on GovernmentContractingTips.com to see if their business qualifies for government contracting.
