Becoming a Certified Small Business Contractor


Looking to bid for federal government work? If you're a member of a minority group or base your company in an impoverished area, the Small Business Administration can give you a big boost in competing for federal contracts. But first you must submit the paperwork to the SBA to get certified in one or all of these three programs:
  1. The 8(a) Business Development Program helps small businesses get started and grow with personalized advice as well as set-asides for federal contracts. The program serves Blacks, Native Americans, Hispanics and Asian Americans but also other persons who can show they've been held back by "social disadvantage."
  2. The Small Disadvantaged Business Program gives small companies a price advantage of 10 per cent on bids for federal work. All 8(a) companies qualify for the SDB program but it is also open to other businesses owned by minorities or disadvantaged persons.
  3. The HUBZone Empowerment Contracting Program serves small companies located inimpoverished urban and rural areas, giving them the 10 per cent price break and a shot at winning contracts without competitive bidding.

Get your application info ready

You'll need to prove that your company is 51% owned by a member of a minority of disadvantage group for 8(a) and SDB, and, of course, show that you're small, but the SBA defines that as up 1500 employees in some cases.
