Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) has said contracting reforms in the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2016 works to open opportunities for small businesses to compete for defense contracts.

Chabot wrote in a guest piece for Defense News published Monday that the 28 million small businesses in the U.S. can help supply warfighter needs amid defense budget cuts.

The chairman of the House Small Business Committee added that the 2016 NDAA incorporated bipartisan contracting bills that were introduced this year, including measures to support small businesses.

The measures work to update the Small Business Act, support small business advocates within federal agencies, open subcontracting and potential prime contract opportunities for small businesses and aid coordination between the Small Business Administration and Defense Department mentor-protege programs, Chabot wrote.

He said the 2016 NDAA also aims to advocate integrity and accountability in small business programs.
