Two weeks ago, the Small Business Administration proudly announced that they surpassed the legally required 23% of Federal contracts to small businesses. "This is excellent news for small businesses doing business with the federal government,” said
Administrator Barreto. “For the third year in a row, the federal government has met or exceeded
its small business contracting goal. The President and his administration are committed to
helping small businesses get their fair share of government contracts.” [pdf]
They however failed to mention that they continue to classify Boeing (member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average), GTSI ($900M in revenue last year), and other "small" businesses in that category.
