Transitioning Federal Small Businesses

The Problem

Did you know that the Federal Industrial Base has shrunk 38% in the past 10 years?

Did you know that only 2.5% of small business federal contractors that outgrow their small business size standard successfully transition to other-than-small business?

Only 2.5% suceed after graduating from the small business program

This problem has created a perverse incentive for advanced small businesses to grow thus leaving a huge Industrial Base gap with very few middle size competitors serving the Federal Government.

The Solution

The Pilot Program for Transitioning Small Businesses in the E/C industries. The Pilot Program is a proposed addition to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023. The Pilot details a seven-year transitioning program that advanced small businesses may elect to enter upon outgrowing their NAICS size standard.

The Pilot Program aims to improve:

  • The Federal Government’s shrinking Industrial Base
  • The struggles faced by advanced small businesses when transitioning to other-than-small
  • The SBA’s shrinking number of new entrants to the small business program
