The federal government spends approximately $500 billion in private sector contracts every year. Over 20% of those contracts must be awarded to small businesses in set-aside programs.

Cy Alba and Meghan Leemon, attorneys in PilieroMazza’s Government Contracts Group, will discuss key details of the government’s small business set-aside programs:
- program requirements,
- key compliance and affiliation issues, and
- advantages of specific programs.
