Many businesses are unaware that the government likely procures their product or service in large quantities locally, statewide or nationally. Since the government promotes economic development with small businesses, a majority of procurements focus on small, minority, women and service disabled owned businesses, as well as businesses located and employing persons in economically distressed areas (HUBZone). While certifying as one of these businesses can appear intimidating, the benefits far outweigh the hassle.
