GSA and the Small Business Administration (SBA) strongly support the participation of small business concerns in the GSA Schedules Program. To enhance small business participation, SBA policy allows agencies to include in their procurement base and goals, the dollar value of orders expected to be placed against GSA Schedule contracts. Actual orders placed against Schedule contracts may be reported as accomplishments and credited toward ordering activities' small business goals. At the discretion of the buying contracting officer, orders and BPAs may be set aside for small businesses of the types listed at FAR 19.000(a)(3), if market research shows that 2 or more such firms are capable of providing the products and/or services required. Ordering procedures at FAR 8.405-1, -2, and -3 must be followed when setting aside an order or establishing a set-aside BPA. Learn more about small business set asides and how you can help meet your agency’s small business goals.
