The U.S. Small Business Administration today released its annual Small Business Procurement Scorecards, which provide an assessment of each federal agency’s annual small business contracting achievement against its goal using a grade of A+ through F. The federal government received an “A” on the government-wide scorecard for 2015, reflecting significant efforts by federal agencies toward meeting their 23 percent statutory goal.
These accomplishments wouldn’t be possible without the help of the agency Office Small Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) directors and senior leaders throughout the federal government,” said John Shoraka, Associate Administrator for Government Contracting and Business Development. “This year’s scorecard also includes several historic firsts. For the first time in history, the U.S. government met its Congressionally-mandated goal of awarding 5 percent of eligible federal contracts to women-owned small businesses. Thanks to the President’s continued leadership and a team effort among all federal agencies, we were able to break records and expand contracting opportunities for women-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned and small disadvantaged businesses.
