Why Be SBA Certified?The SBA(Small Business Administration) Certification in the SDB(Small Disadvantaged Business), the 8(a) DBE provides benefits by:
- Bringing more dollars to an eligible company through SDB procurement mechanisms;
- Targeting competition to specific industries where there are disparities; and
- Increasing economic activity in distressed communities.
SDB certified companies may benefit in one of two ways. First, an SDB can qualify for a price evaluation adjustment when bidding as a prime contractor. Second, all prime contractors are encouraged to use certified SDB's as subcontractors through mandated evaluation factors and optional monetary incentives.
Small businesses are considered SDB's upon successful certification into the SBA 8(a) DBE Program. In addition to the benefits available through the SDB Program, 8(a) firms enter into a nine-year partnering relationship with the SBA.
