The arguments made in the Nay section are missing the point. There are no politics involved in 99% of the small business awards out there - most are for smaller work at a variety of government sites. Most of the time these are implemented by larger companies with operating contracts and incentives in their contracts to award contracts to small/woman owned/veteran owned/Disadvantaged owned/Hub Zone contractors. Performance is evaluated and value delivered. These contracts work very well at keeping small businesses thriving.
