Department of Homeland Security Small Business Goals

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is responsible for the management and oversight of the small business procurement process across the federal government. SBA negotiates with federal departments concerning their prime contracting goal and achievement with small businesses to ensure that small businesses have the maximum practicable opportunity to provide goods and services to the federal government.

The negotiation ensures that the federal government will achieve not less than 23 percent to small businesses, not less than 5 percent to woman-owned small businesses and small disadvantaged businesses, and not less than 3 percent to service disabled veteran-owned small businesses and certified HUBZone small businesses.

The Department of Homeland Security’s FY 2016 goals are listed below:
