Learn About Increasing Government Contracting Opportunities

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Los Angeles District Office will be conducting a FREE 8(a) & HUBZone workshop.

SBA invites you to learn about how to increase government contracting opportunities through 8(a) and HUBZone certifications.

8(a) Business Development Program helps small disadvantaged businesses compete in the American economy and access the federal procurement market. Participants in the program can receive sole source contracts up to $4 million for goods and services and $6.5 million for manufacturing. The federal government has a goal of awarding 5% of all dollars for federal prime contracts to 8(a) firms.

SBA’s HUBZone program helps small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities with 10% price evaluation preference in full and open contract competitions, as well as subcontracting opportunities. The federal government has a goal of awarding 3% of all dollars for federal prime contracts to HUBZone-certified small businesses.
