Small Business Set Asides -- Shifting Paradigms to Win Contracts with the Federal Government. The author presents background and opinions about shifting paradigms in order for the federal government to start using small business set aside programs. That paradigm shift happens when (a) small professional businesses come together and collectively approach the Small Business Administration (e.g., PCRs and supervisory PCRs), (b) small professional businesses file and follow up on GAO protests or with the Inspector General (to substantiate small business set asides by showing breadth and depth of small business qualifications and types of work that small businesses can do) and with supporting documentation from FOIA responses (e.g., findings used to justify full and open competitions along with task order pricing details over several years time that may demonstrate that each task order or a series of task orders are small enough to demonstrate warranting small business set asides, etc.), (c) small professional businesses file applications to get on the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) (FAR 38 “exception”) and market those FSS contracts, and (d) small professional businesses are able to communicate with large professional businesses that explain the advantages of subcontracting and/or joint ventures (e.g., if a large business subcontracts with an 8a/SDB small business, then the government entity can Sole Source a contract for millions of dollars to the small business that has partnered with the large business).
