Growing the Small Business Supplier Base in Government Contracting

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 | 12:00 PM
The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Contracting and Infrastructure will hold a remote hearing titled: “Growing the Small Business Supplier Base in Government Contracting.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 12:00 P.M. on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 via the Zoom platform (information to be provided).

In the last decade, the federal small business supplier base has shrunk by an astounding 40 percent. While not the only factor, Category Management has substantially contributed and accelerated this decrease. The hearing will examine Category Management and its impact on small businesses serving as federal prime contractors. The hearing will also explore potential solutions to reverse this trend and grow our federal small business supplier base.
