The Department of Defense offers two markets for small, small disadvantaged, HUBZone, woman-owned, and service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns seeking defense contracting opportunities. The first market encompasses prime contracting and the second market encompasses Defense subcontracting opportunities.
DoD requires large businesses receiving contracts valued over $700,000 ($1.5M in construction) to develop plans and goals for subcontracting with small, small disadvantaged, HUBzone, veteran-owned, woman-owned, and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses. This requirement generates a significant subcontracting opportunity market.
