In addition to the industry structure, the SBA also evaluates federal market data to assess the success of small businesses in awarding federal contracts to existing size standards. For each sector with $20 million or more in annual federal contracts dollars, SBA estimates the share of small businesses in the federal contract dollar as a whole relative to the share of small businesses in total industry revenues. All other factors are the same, if the share of federal contracts in small businesses in a sector is significantly lower than the share of small businesses in total revenues in this sector, this would warrant a review of a standard larger than the current size standard. Conversely, the current size standard is supported when the share of small businesses in government procurement is close to or greater than the share of small businesses in total industry revenues. Based on the 2012 Economic Census, the SBA estimates that in 132 branches of the NAICS 61, 62, 71, 72 and 81 sectors, for which the analysis results suggested a change in size standards, approximately 2,990 firms (see Table 11 below) would become small under Option One. This represents about 0.2 per cent of all small businesses by current size standards. It is important to have a good contract. They want to avoid misunderstandings and unreasonable liability. Ideally, this agreement gives you flexibility in the completion of services, lists work costs (and additional costs if you come across unforeseen circumstances) and sets limits for your liability (e.g.B.
Limiting this liability to service charges). You have to be very careful about what you want to be mandatory or non-binding in the letter. Most declarations of intent are non-binding and are merely an expression of the fact that the parties are considering a particular agreement and wish to continue negotiations for a comprehensive final agreement. However, declarations of intent can also be binding contracts, so be careful with what you say in these letters. In addition, the SBA adjusts its monetary size standards to inflation at least every five years.
