Small Business Goals
and Accomplishments





The Small Business Administration (SBA) is responsible for ensuring the government-wide goals for participation of small businesses are established annually at the statutory levels, and that the reporting agencies’ achievements are relative to the goals. Federal government agencies negotiate with the SBA to establish mandatory small business goals. The Coast Guard is committed to ensuring that small business have maximum opportunities to compete for contracts.
