On December 29, 2014, the SBA issued its Proposed Rule announcing changes to the calculation(s) of the limitations on subcontracting, as well as other changes implemented by the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act. Comments were initially due on February 27, 2015; however, as we previously reported, the SBA reopened the comment period due to requests to extend the deadline and the scope/significance of the proposed rule. Comments are now due on April 6, 2015.
We encourage those in the small business contracting community that may be impacted by the Proposed Rule to submit comments. The SBA has specifically requested as many comments as possible, even with the knowledge that every single comment submitted must be reviewed and considered. The more comments the SBA receives on a particular issue, the greater chance there is that SBA will give serious consideration to those comments and recommendations/suggestions in issuing the Final Rule.
If you have any questions about the Proposed Rule or our comments, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (808) 369-9710.
