Small Business Resources
The Small Business Administration (SBA) website is helpful in identifying potential vendors or suppliers of products or services. It also identifies those small business firms certified by the SBA as “Disadvantaged” or “HUBZone.” All other small business classifications, such as Women-owned or Veteran-owned, only require a prospective vendor or supplier to identify the business as falling under that classification.
The NAICS Code Search portion of the U.S. Census Bureau website provides helpful information about the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). In order to determine the “size” of a vendor or supplier (e.g., “large” or “small”), the commodity or service being offered must be identified by an NAICS code. Business size varies from one NAICS code to another.
Small Business Classification
If a vendor or supplier is identified as being a “small business”, its small business status or classification must be identified. The various small business classifications are shown below.
a small business concern that represents, as part of its offer, that:
- It has received certification as a small, disadvantaged business concern consistent with 13 CFR part 124, Subpart B;
- No material change in disadvantaged ownership and control has occurred since its certification;
- Where the concern is owned by one or more individuals, the net worth of each individual upon whom the certification is based does not exceed $750,000 after taking into account the applicable exclusions set forth at 13 CFR 124.104(c)(2); and
- It is identified, on the date of its representation, as a certified small, disadvantaged business in the database maintained by the Small Business Administration (PRO-Net).
a small business that is at least 51% owned by one or more women who are U.S. citizens; or, in the case of any publicly owned business, at least 51% of the stock of which is owned by one or more women; and whose management and daily business operations are controlled by one or more women.
