It is company policy to provide subcontracting opportunities to small business concerns to the maximum extent practicable, consistent with the efficient performance of its government prime contracts. A small business concern is a business entity that is organized for profit, contributes to the U.S. economy, maintains a place of business in the U.S., and is not dominant in its field of operations. Small businesses represent their business size based on size standards that are matched with industry (e.g., Roofing Contractor, Machine Tool Manufacturer, Merchant Wholesaler, Software Publisher, et al.). The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) establishes small business size standards matched to industries described in the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). Additional information regarding industry classification and business size is available through the following non-Bechtel Marine Propulsion Corporation affiliated resources:
The SBA also has the following resources available for companies that are new to government contracting:
The Bechtel Marine Propulsion Corporation small business subcontracting program establishes subcontracting goals for small business concerns, small disadvantaged business concerns, women-owned small business concerns, HUBZone small business concerns, veteran-owned small business concerns, and service disabled veteran-owned small business concerns.
