Find Sub-Contracting Opportunities


Finding Subcontracting opportunities:


Remember that in your proposal to a large business, you must self-certify that you are a small business for the specific NAICS code listed in the solicitation – so that your subcontract can count toward the prime’s small business subcontracting goals.


Limitations on subcontracting:

If a contract valued at over $150,000 is set-aside for award to a certain small business category ( 8a; woman-owned; veteran-owned  etc)  that  small business must perform  a certain minimum level of the work – generally 50% of the personnel cost for a service contract; 15% for general construction; and 25% for specialty trades. More details can be found at the SBA website


Subcontracting rules and regulations:

The rules and regulations that govern the subcontracting program are found in the Code of Federal Regulations, the Federal Acquisition Regulations, and individual agency supplements.
