Dear Mr. Steven Farmer:
am pleased to advise you that your firm has successfully completed a
full document review of all HUBZone eligibility criteria as a result of
the HUBZone Program Office Legacy Portfolio Review effort of 2011. Our determination is that your concern's status as a "qualified HUBZone small business concern (SBC)" will continue. In
addition, since your firm was also up for recertification this year,
the firm’s recertification requirements are also satisfied. Therefore, your concern continues to be eligible to receive HUBZone contracting opportunities, and continues to be included in the listing of qualified HUBZone small business concerns found on the Internet at http://www.sba.gov/hubzone.
Certification will remain in effect at least until the results of the
2010 census are publicly released, around mid-2011. This is provided
that your concern remains in compliance with the program's other
continuing eligibility requirements.
When you originally applied
for HUBZone Program certification, your concern had to be registered in
the Central Contractor Registration/Procurement Marketing and Access
Network (CCR/SBA Supplemental Page) systems. For your concern to receive
benefit from the HUBZone Program, that is, to be identified by
contracting officers as eligible to receive HUBZone contracts and to be
paid under any such contracts, it is essential that you continue to
update your CCR/SBA Supplemental Page records at least annually, and
more frequently if there have been material changes in your concern. If
you need assistance in updating your CCR/SBA Supplemental Page records,
please contact the CCR Assistance Center at 866.606.8220, or the SBA
Supplemental Page Help Desk at PRONET@SBA.GOV.
concern was approved under the North American Industry Classification
System (NAICS) Code found in your firm's Small Dynamic Business Profile
(SDBS) and the Central Contractor Registry (CCR) Profiles, this does not
prevent your concern from being awarded contracts under other NAICS
Codes, as long as the concern is qualified to and eligible as a small
business. In this regard, please note that you are responsible for
researching and identifying potential contracts that may be available
through the HUBZone Program. However, the SBA can assist you in
this effort through our Government Contracting web-site which you can
access at http://www.sba.gov. This site provides a wide array of
valuable Federal contract marketing material, including identification
of specific contracting opportunities and points of contact at SBA and
Federal acquisition agencies. I encourage you to make full use of the
very valuable information on this web-site. Also, although your status
as a certified HUBZone concern greatly improves your access to
Federal contracts, this certification does not guarantee contract
awards. Your ability to research opportunities and bid competitively
will be the key to your success in this program.
Lastly, I'd like to encourage you to visit the counseling and online training available at http://www.sba.gov/. Many
of the online resources will provide you with a thorough understanding
of government contracting and working with government agencies.
