Select GCR Can Help You Identify the Best Path to Success in Government Contracting.

Government Contract Programs
The current government spending program stipulates that 23% of the near $400B dollars spent in the private sector go to small businesses. Beyond that, there are several other subcategories that can create additional revenue streams for small businesses that meet certain designations.
Small business set-asides are a powerful tool for helping small businesses compete for and win federal contracts. There are many different kinds of set-asides, and some are open to all small businesses, with others that are only open to small businesses with certain designations.

Let’s Break Down Some of the Different Government
Contracting Set Aside Programs Here:
  • Contract Value
  • Prime Contract Goals
  • Set Aside & Sole Source Programs

Select GCR Contract Value

A set-aside is based partially on the value of the goods or services that the government is looking to purchase.

$3500 – $150,000
If a federal government purchase has a value between $3500 (also known currently as the “micro-purchase threshold”) and $150,000 (also known as the Simplified Acquisition Threshold or SAT) it is required to be automatically and exclusively set-aside for small businesses.

There must be at least two or more responsible small businesses (Rule of Two) that are competitive in terms of market price, quality and delivery for an automatic set-aside to occur.

in your area with the Select GCR Pro tool!

Contract opportunities above the SAT of $150,000 can also be set aside if the Rule of Two is met.

$700,000 or $1.5M for Construction
For any contract opportunities between $700,000 to $1.5M that are awarded to “Other Than Small Businesses (OTSB’s), these OTSB’s must have small business subcontracting plans where it is available. This is great news for small businesses and those that meet the small disadvantaged, HUBZone, veteran-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned and woman-owned criteria and certification.

Select GCR Prime Contract Goals

Specified Annual Contracting Goals for Small Businesses.

The Federal government has specified annual prime contracting goals for designated small businesses in order to support them in winning federal contracts. Currently, 23% of all federal contracting dollars are awarded to these businesses.

In addition, businesses that meet the following criteria and certifications are eligible for additional opportunities:


  • Women Owned Small Business – 5%
  • Small Disadvantaged Business (8a) – 5%
  • Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business – 3%
  • HUBZone – 3%

Select GCR Set Asides

A set-aside is based partially on the value of the goods or services that the government is looking to purchase.

Government contracts can be set-aside for small businesses in the above categories and there may also be sole source development opportunities available under the 8(a) program and conditional sole source opportunities under the HUBZone, SDVOSB and WOSB programs as well.

Sole source contracts are contracts that only one company can provide the services needed. Any attempt bids would solely result in that one company bidding on it. Meeting the above certifications and socioeconomic statuses could allow your business to be a sole source supplier.
