If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)

What is the advantage of being in a HUBZone? (Historically Underutilized Business Zone) Kevin and Paul gave an overview of the HUBZone program in Episode 178. Today they dive deeper into this special niche for small businesses.

Listen and learn how FAR 19.1305 gives contracting officers the ability to set certain acquisitions aside exclusively for qualified HUBZone small businesses and in some circumstances even award on a sole source basis. You’ll also gain insight into why just being a HUBZone small business concern isn’t enough to gain the Government’s interest.
