About the Event

The government works to make sure small businesses get at least twenty-three percent of all federal contracting dollars. Additionally, the government tries to award a certain percentage of all federal prime contracting dollars to small businesses that meet certain socio-economic conditions. The SBA provides several programs to help small businesses win federal contracts.

Participating in these programs helps small businesses:

  • Win a fair share of federal contracts
  • Qualify for exclusive set-aside and sole-source contracts
  • Partner with established contractors to win contracts
  • Get business mentoring and education to learn how federal contracting works
