GSA Receives High Marks from SBA for Small Business Success


WASHINGTON, D.C – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) recently received an “A” on its 2017 Small Business Procurement Scorecard from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). GSA has now received “A's” from the SBA for its work expanding opportunities for small businesses around the country for eight consecutive years.  

The SBA’s annual Small Business Procurement Scorecard is an assessment tool to measure how well federal agencies reach their small business and socio-economic prime contracting and subcontracting goals, provide accurate and transparent contracting data, and report agency-specific progress.

“Encouraging small business participation in government contracting brings innovative solutions to our marketplace, strengthens our industrial base, and helps create American jobs,” said GSA Administrator Emily Murphy. “I am proud of GSA’s continued success, we will continue promoting ways for small businesses to compete for government contracts.”

“GSA is proud to serve the small business community and we are honored to receive another high mark on our Small Business Procurement Scorecard,” said GSA’s Office of Small Business Utilization (OSBU) Associate Administrator, Charles Manger. “We look forward to continuing to expand opportunities for small businesses and delivering the best value to taxpayers.”

During fiscal year 2017, GSA awarded $1.9 billion, more than 42 percent of eligible contract dollars, to small businesses and exceeded all of its small business and socio-economic small business goals at the prime contract level.

At the subcontracting level, GSA surpassed the small disadvantaged business and women-owned small business goals while increasing total subcontracted dollars to both HUBZone small businesses and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses.
