TAKE ACTION to Support Small Biz Reform!

TAKE ACTION! 

Help Grow All Small Business Subcontractor Opportunities 
Support General Contractors Counting Small Business Contractors at All Tiers 
 

The U.S. Senate could vote soon to allow federal contractors to count small business subcontractors below the first tier of subcontracting towards their small business subcontracting goals. Please TAKE ACTION NOW and urge your U.S. Senators to support the Coons/Wicker Amendment #2286 to S. 1197, the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2014.

If enacted, the Coons/Wicker Amendment #2286 would incentivize prime contractors to provide more small business subcontracting opportunities at ALL tiers of subcontracting by allowing them to count lower tier subcontractors toward their small business goals.

The House of Representatives passed this small business reform in June 2013 in its NDAA bill. The Senate is currently considering this reform as an amendment to its version of the NDAA bill.

Again, please TAKE ACTION NOW and urge your U.S. Senators to support the Coons/Wicker Amendment #2286 to S. 1197.
