FAR 2.101 defines small business. Everything else is a large business.  Most companies, however, are not very small yet not really large.

Kevin and Paul discuss the many shades of “large small” businesses and “small large” businesses.  Learn some of the challenges that companies on the cusp face as they transition from small to large in the Government’s eyes.

Find out how the Government can target different sized “large” businesses during the market research and RFP zones.  You’ll also gain an appreciation of the compliance burdens that large businesses face in the Government market.


Kevin Jans and Paul Schauer created the Contracting Officer Podcast to help Government and Industry acquisition professionals understand more about how the other side thinks.  Admittedly, the podcast’s name sounds very limiting.  It is not just for contracting officers or even just for those in the contracting profession.  Anyone with an interest in the Federal acquisition world can benefit from the insight and down-to-earth explanations of complicated topics provided by the hosts.
