SBA’s Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) certification was designed to expand economic opportunity for disadvantaged businesses.
As a certified Small Disadvantaged Business, The Bridge Group is eligible for preferences under new federal procurement regulations. The main preference is a "price evaluation adjustment" of up to 10% for SDBs bidding as prime contractors. The price adjustment means The Bridge Group won't have to be the lowest bidder to win a contract award. The rules also provide a system of preferences for large businesses that use The Bridge Group as a subcontractor.
The federal government's goal is to award at least 5% of all federal contracting dollars to Small Disadvantaged Businesses.
