(Sec. 3) This bill requires the Small Business Administration (SBA) to report to specified congressional committees on determinations as to:
- whether small business concerns and each category of covered small business concerns (specified below) are being utilized in a significant portion of the federal market on multiple award contracts, including whether awards are being reserved for one or more of those categories and whether each such category is being given the opportunity to perform on such contracts; and
- whether current performance requirements for such contracts are feasible and appropriate for small business concerns.
The term "covered small business concerns" means:
- HUBZone small business concerns,
- small business concerns owned and controlled by service-disabled veterans,
- small business concerns owned and controlled by women, and
- socially and economically disadvantaged small business concerns receiving SBA procurement contracts.
In making such determinations, the SBA shall use information from multiple award contracts: (1) with varied assigned North American Industry Classification System codes, and (2) that were awarded by at least eight federal agencies.
