Small Business Jobs Act Tour coming to San Diego
The U.S. Small Business Administration is hosting a Small Business Jobs Act (SBJA) forum in San Diego and is inviting small business representatives to participate.
The SBJA has 19 provisions which will directly impact how the Federal Government buys its goods and services. You will have an opportunity to hear from SBA senior staff how the Act affects your company and offer input on SBJA provisions including the following contracting topic areas:
1) Multiple Award Contract Set-Asides;
2) Subcontracting: misrepresentations, plan improvements and timeliness of payment;
3) Mentor Protégé Programs for women, HUBZone and Service Disabled Veteran firms;
4) Presumption of Loss to the Government due to willful misrepresentation of size and annual certification of size;
5) Size Standards; and,
6) other key SBJA provisions
The SBJA was signed into law by President Obama last September. It is the most significant piece of small business legislation in over a decade. The new law is providing critical resources to help small businesses continue to drive economic recovery and create jobs. It also extends the successful SBA enhanced loan provisions while offering billions more in lending support, tax cuts, and other opportunities for entrepreneurs and small business owners.
The Jobs Act Tour will take place on April 11, 9 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., at the County Health Services Complex, (Coronado Room)**
3851 Rosecrans St.
San Diego, CA 92110
