The Small Business Administration is preparing
to release later this month a proposed new regulation that could revise the
annual revenue limits that determine whether information technology companies
qualify as small businesses when they bid on federal IT services contracts.
I'll add to this later, but for starters, I'll say that it's a bad idea to
pit $50M companies against $1M, $5M and $10M companies. If companies that exceed
the established size standards need additional support, then they should form a
lobby and pursue a set-aside program that does not cause harm to the companies
that the current set-aside programs are intended to support.
