What is a small business certification, and why is it important?

A small business certification is an extra step that can be taken to ensure you are getting the most out of your federal contracting and grant registration. If you have successfully registered in SAM, you may qualify for a Small Business Certification.  The SBA sets “size standards” for businesses that can be considered for small business certifications,

A small business certification can be extremely beneficial to your company, especially if you are looking to take on more business as a federal contractor. Being registered in the small business database will ensure that prime contractors can find you based on your NAICS Code and/or other factors, narrowing down the pool of competition significantly.

If you are unsure if you qualify as a small business according to SBA, use the Small Business Calculator Tool by clicking the button below. Additionally, if you are unsure if you have a SAM Registration, use the SAM Status Lookup Tool by clicking the other button below.
