CLM059 Fundamentals of Small Business for the Acquisition Workforce Lesson 1.1 -The Small Business Industrial Base Table of Contents Small Business Contribution - DoD Summary statistics on tangible small business contributions on a per project or program basis (cost, schedule and performance contributions) are difficult to track in DoD. There is no centralized database to capture and report these types of small business success stories. As Acquisition Professionals, you can help mitigate these challenges by sharing your small business success stories (quantitative and qualitative) with your local SBP and leadership. These success stories generally make it into public affairs articles, annual performance appraisals/recognition, and your Component/agency annual inputs for SBA's Scorecard, which SBA uses for measuring and grading agency small business performance. Despite the difficulties in manually collecting/reporting the tangible small business contributions, the DoD is the most significant agency when it comes to influencing Federal small business performance outcomes. This is because the DoD budget and contract dollar obligations are very large in comparison to other Federal agencies. For example, from a quick glance at the SBA's FY16 Scorecard at the above link, you can see DoD obligated 61 % ($252B) of the Federal contract dollars ($411B). In other words, when DoD meets its small business goals, so does the Federal Government. Unfortunately, the reverse is true also which is why we're counting on each of you to do your part. Improved DoD small business performance means more opportunities for small businesses which, in turn, increases competition and helps to strengthen the national economy and industrial base.
