SBA Proposes Important New Section 8(A) Regulations


On October 28, 2009, the SBA published a proposed rule proposing to clarify and/or change various aspects of its Small Disadvantaged Business program and its size regulations. The proposed regulatory changes are directed at (1) eliminating abuses of joint ventures between tribally-owned or ANC-owned concerns and large businesses; (2) providing clarifications to existing SBA requirements; and (3) eliminating or easing certain restrictions relating to the 8(a) program.
