Editor-in-Chief Visionary’s Note: Well said by my friend Steven Koprince! This is simply a revision of the ‘new math‘ used to show success for something which is far from it. Just imagine what this report card would look like if all of the obligations were removed where government assistance were not a factor? If it wasn’t a set-aside or socioeconomic sole source, then it can’t be counted as part of the government’s goal since they didn’t plan for it to happen. Goals are based on intent, right?
The government missed its Fiscal Year 2016 HUBZone goal by a country mile, and didn’t hit the 5% WOSB goal, either. But according to the SBA, the government deserves an “A” for its FY 2016 small business achievements.
