GSA Gets ‘A’ Grade on SBA’s Annual Small Business Contracting Scorecard

GSAThe General Services Administration has earned a grade of A for working to meet its small-business prime contracting and subcontracting targets last year, GSA official Jerome Fletcher wrote in a blog post published Monday.

Fletcher, associate administrator of GSA’s small business utilization office, said the agency awarded about $1.5 billion in contracts to small companies during fiscal 2014 and received the high mark on the Small Business Administration‘s annual scorecard for the initiative.

He added the companies account for approximately 80 percent of all vendor participants in the Schedule government acquisition program.

The agency launched the Small Business First campaign to “further empower our acquisition and contracting staff to consider small business when making contract awards,” Fletcher noted.

GSA also holds open house events to offer counseling and training services to the small business community.
