Nonmanufacturer Rule Class Waivers

Proposed terminations 87 FR 8628(furniture); 87 FR 8630 (radiology equipment)

  • SBA issued notices of intent to terminate class waivers of the nonmanufacturer rule for two classes of products:
    • Radiology equipment (CT/CAT scanners, X-ray)
    • Certain furniture products (factory, hospital, and laboratory, plus specified frames and parts)
  • If finalized, the nonmanufacturer rule will apply to these products
    • For set-aside contracts—except small-business set-asides below the SAT— awardees must provide their own product or the product of a small business manufacturer
    • SBA also is able to grant individual waivers for specific contracts
