Exceeding our Goals

GSA has a substantial commitment to small business, as well as businesses owned by veteran, women, minority, and disadvantaged entrepreneurs. These men and women are an important part of all of our projects, from providing much needed disaster relief supplies to renovating agency headquarters. Small businesses provide unique value and important services to all federal agencies.

Each year the federal government spends $500 billion in contracts. The Small Business Act sets a goal of awarding 23 percent of those prime federal contracts dollars to small firms. Each agency has a responsibility to meet their share of that goal. More than $1.5 billion of GSA contracts went to small businesses in FY 2014. That represents over 39 percent of all GSA sales going to small businesses, more than 16 percent above the federal goal.

Please see the Small Business Dashboard for more details.
