Small businesses are important to the U.S. economy for their roles in technological development & job creation.

The fed. govżt. long-standing policy has been to use its buying power -- the billions of dollars it spends through contracting each year -- to maximize procurement opportunities for small businesses, including those owned by service-disabled veterans. The Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA) is to give first and second priority to small businesses owned by service-disabled and other veterans, respectively, when it uses small business preferences to award its contracts. The act also requires VA to establish contracting goals for service disabled veteran-owned small businesses and other veteran-owned

There has been ongoing concern that some regulations, rules, and government policies place a disproportionate burden on small businesses and entrepreneurs. For this reason, small businesses often receive special regulatory treatment, such as exemptions from legislation or extended deadlines for compliance. However, the desire to support small businesses can come into conflict with the interest in addressing the concerns that led to the regulation or policy in the first place. Moreover, it is often unclear whether special regulatory treatment for small businesses is having the intended effect.

For some small businesses, the security of their information, systems, and networks might not be a high priority, but for their customers, employees, and trading partners it is very important. The size of a small business varies by type of business, but typically is a business or organization with up to 500 employees. In the U.S., the number of small businesses totals to over 95% of all businesses. The small business community produces around 50% of our nationżs GNP and creates around 50% of all new jobs in our country. Small businesses, therefore, are a very important part of our nationżs e

Congress has directed that 23 percent of direct federal purchases come from small businesses. As the largest purchaser in the federal government, the Department of Defense (DoD) is key to achieving this policy objective. The impetus for this research was to suggest industries that DoD could target for outreach to small firms. This briefing compares DoD procurement from small businesses with non-DoD federal procurement from small businesses, and it documents the prevalence of small businesses in industries DoD relies upon. The analysis suggests industries for possible outreach efforts and concl

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. The annual cost of federal regulations in the U.S. increased to more than $1.75 trillion in 2008. Had every U.S. household paid an equal share of the federal regulatory burden, each would have owed $15,586 in 2008. While all citizens and businesses pay some portion of these costs, the distribution of the burden of regulations is quite uneven. The portion of regulatory costs that falls initially on businesses was $8,086 per employee in 2008. Small businesses, defined as firms employing fewer than 20 employees, bear the largest bur
