The U.S. government is the largest single purchaser of goods and services in the world, awarding approximately $500 billion in contracts every year.

The Small Business Administration works with federal agencies to award at least 23 percent of all prime government contract dollars to small businesses and help federal agencies meet specific statutory goals for small disadvantaged businesses, women-owned small businesses (WOSB), service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSB), and small businesses that are located in historically underutilized business zones (HUBZone). In addition, SBAs 8(a) Business Development Program assists eligible socially and economically disadvantaged individuals in developing and growing their businesses through one-on-one counseling, training workshops, matchmaking opportunities with federal buyers, and other management and technical guidance.

Last year, more than $100 million worth of federal government contracts were awarded to Nebraska businesses alone.
