Small Business Resources
We continually seek opportunities to team with qualified small businesses on both national and regional projects.
What We Look For
In most cases, we look for businesses with personnel registered or certified in disciplines that complement or augment our services in support of large contracts for government clients.
- For federal contracts, we encourage teaming relationships with small businesses—notably those certified by the Small Business Administration (SBA) as Disadvantaged HUBZone and 8(a) businesses, Women Owned Businesses, Veteran-Owned/Service-Disabled businesses, and other categories identified by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (https://www.acquisition.gov/far/).
- For other government contracts, we look for the necessary certifications and registrations at the state or local level - for example, certification as a disadvantaged enterprise (DBE) or women’s business enterprise (WBE).
Your business must be fully experienced and qualified to perform work in the discipline, and meet bonding, insurance, health and safety, and government agency-identified project requirements. It helps if your business has experience working for government agencies or has teamed with us in the past.
Here’s what to do if your firm is a small business interested in opportunities for teaming with us.
- If you are interested in:
- Federal contract work. Register in the Central Contractor Registration database (www.bpn.gov/ccr). Registering enables a qualified small business to be listed in the Small Business Administration’s Dynamic Search Database.
Questions? Contact 1-800-U-ASK-SBA or visit www.sba.gov.
- Work for other government agencies. Coordinate with your state or municipal agency to obtain small business certifications or registration.
- Complete the Subconsultant Qualification Form. (PDF: 73KB)
Click the link above to open the form.
- Send your information to us.
Send the signed qualification form to the address listed on the form, along with a copy of your Federal Standard Form 330 (if available) and other qualifications literature.
Be aware that the qualification form is not tied to a specific project opportunity, nor is it a request for proposals; we are simply seeking general qualifications data.
Firms certifying as Small Businesses must meet the criteria set forth by the Small Business Administration in accordance with 13CFR 121 and the applicable North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) size standard. Additionally, firms representing themselves as certified HUBZone and/or Small Disadvantaged Businesses must be SBA certified.
