Federal contractors are required to maintain an acceptable subcontracting plan if they are a large business (including all affiliates) and the estimated dollar value of the base contract and all option periods exceeds, or is expected to exceed, $650,000.
Contractors that meet the above criteria must establish a subcontracting plan with specific dollar and percent goals for subcontracting to small, HUBZone small, small disadvantaged, small women-owned, veteran-owned small, and service-disabled veteran-owned small business firms. This plan must be in place prior to contract award and is updated annually.
