From BNA, Federal Contracts Reports
On May 16, 2012, the Small Business Administration issued what is arguably one of the most significant proposed rules for small businesses issued in the past decade. The proposed rule implements Section 1331 of the Small Business Jobs Act, signed by the president in September 2010. Section 1331 of the Jobs Act requires SBA and OFPP to establish regulations under which federal agencies may set aside orders under multiple-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinitequantity contracts for small business.
