SBA issues proposed size standards for NAICS Sector 54, Professional, Technical, and Scientific Services

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has proposed to increase small business size standards for 35 industries and one sub-industry in North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Sector 54, Professional, Scientific and Technical Services and one industry in NAICS Sector 81, Other Services.  As part of its ongoing comprehensive review of all size standards, SBA has evaluated 45 industries and three sub-industries in NAICS Sector 54 and one industry in NAICS Sector 81 to determine whether the existing size standards should be retained or revised.  This proposed rule is one of a series of proposals that will examine size standards of industries grouped by an NAICS Sector. SBA has issued a White Paper entitled "Size Standards Methodology” and published in the October 21, 2009 issue of the Federal Register a notice that "Size Standards Methodology” is available on its website at for public review and comments.  The "Size Standards Methodology” White Paper explains how SBA establishes, reviews and modifies its receipts based and employee based small business size standards. In this proposed rule, SBA has applied its methodology that pertains to establishing, reviewing and modifying a receipts based size standard.  SBA included a copy of "Size Standards Methodology” in the same docket file (SBA-2011-0008).

We invite you to review the proposed rule and submit your comments. The proposed rule explains how to submit your comments. We recommend that you submit your comments through the Federal eRulemaking Portal:  Follow the instructions there for submitting your comments.

The deadline for submission of comments is Monday, May 16, 2011.

You can read/download the proposed rule at (RIN 3245-AG07).
