Industry wants size rule held
The Small Business Administration should delay implementation of a rule requiring small businesses with a multiple-award schedule or other multiple-award contract to annually recertify their size, according to the Professional Services Council. The trade group represents technical and professional services firms.
The proposed rule raises issues that should be addressed before implementation, according to comments submitted to the SBA by Alan Chvotkin, PSC's senior vice president and counsel.
PSC said the proposed rule would make teaming more difficult, applies only to GSA contracts, and would conflict with other size certification rules.
