Most companies can qualify for a GSA schedule.
In addition, if you qualify as a SET ASIDE company you will have an increased level of opportunity. The GSA is mandated to spend up to 43% of allocated funds on SET ASIDE businesses (Women Owned, Retired/Disabled Veteran Owned, Minority Owned, Regular/Disadvantaged Small Business, Hub zone Certified, 8A approved, and 8M (WOSB/EDWOSB)).
These funds are already there waiting for businesses like you!
Gov Business NW is committed to being your one stop shop when it comes to government contracting. As part of our general offering, we can produce individual business certifications/classifications for those eligible for Federal Government Set Aside opportunities.
THE SMALL BUSINESS ACT
Congress has established a 23% governmentwide goal for awards of contracts to small businesses. Subsets of the small business goal are a 5% governmentwide goal for awards to small disadvantaged businesses (SDBs), a 5% governmentwide goal for awards to women-owned small businesses (WOSB), a 3% governmentwide goal for awards to Ahistorically underutilized business zone@ (HUBZone) small businesses, and a 3% governmentwide goal for awards to service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSB). A contract can get counted towards more than one goal: an award to an SDB in a HUBZone that is owned by a service-disabled woman veteran would
be counted towards all the goals.
