Socio-Economic

Small business is the engine that truly drives the United States economy.

It not only creates much needed new jobs, but its business model can rapidly inject innovation and provide agile responsiveness that can be stifled by big business bureaucracy. This is precisely the reason Congress has mandated direct Federal procurement contracts to meet their small business goals. However, there are many misconceptions that cause Federal customers concerns:
