Skeptical Senate chairman asks SBA for list of every contractor it counted as a small business
A Senate chairman has asked the Small Business Administration to provide him with a list of every company that was counted toward the federal government’s small business contracting goal in 2014.
Last year, the SBA reported the government had met its goal of awarding small businesses 23 percent of all federal contracting dollars for the first time in eight years.
“We’re expecting even better results when we release the 2014 scorecard in the coming weeks,” SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet said May 8, during a White House event honoring National Small Business Week award winners.
