AGC advocates for federal procurement reform

Ensure that small business goals take into consideration actual small business capacity in relevant specialty markets.

February 17, 2012 |

Representatives from The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) testified at a Congressional hearing for reform of the federal procurement process. AGC's recommendations include:

  • Create safe harbor standards that do not penalize contractors for making good faith efforts to abide by SBA rules and regulations.
  • Limit overreliance on construction to achieve overall agency small business contracting goals.
  • Ensure that small business goals take into consideration actual small business capacity in relevant specialty markets.
  • Count all small business participation at all contracting tiers.
  • Revise the bundling definition to clarify that contract bundling rules apply to construction procurements.
