Study Results Include Steps to Achieve Small Business Contract Goals

Federal policy requires that small businesses receive the "maximum practicable opportunity" for providing goods and services to agencies through prime contracts.
A study conducted by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) provides the U.S. Department of Energy with suggestions to help achieve small business goals.

Recommendations found in "Improved Program Management Could Help Achieve Small Business Goal" include successful strategies taken by other federal agencies. All levels of government facing small business challenges can benefit from suggested evaluation strategies and process changes intended to improve performance.
