residents with career opportunities and we give back to the HUBZone
program that helps our staff and company to grow.
Important Notice November 2008 Federal ruling:
GAO Gives HUBZone Program Priority over Service Disabled Veteran Owned Firms
Federal Government Full and open competition contracts must be awarded with a price
evaluation preference. The offer by a HUBZone vendor will be
considered lower than the offer of a non-HUBZone or non-small business
provided that the offer by the HUBZone small business is not more than
In a full and open competition, a qualified
HUBZone vendor submits an offer of $100, a non-HUBZone small business
submits and offer of $97, and a large business submits an offer of $95.
It appears the lowest offeror would be the large business at $95.00
however because a qualified HUBZone vendor offer was submitted the contracting officer must apply the price evaluation preferences. As such, the HUBZone offer of $100 is not more than 10% higher than the $95 offer of the large business.
In a full and open competition, a qualified HUBZone firm submits an offer of $103, a non-HUBZone small business submits and offer of $100, and a large business submits an offer of $93. The lowest, responsive, responsible offeror would be the large business.
Again, in this case, because a qualified HUBZone firm is involved in a fully competitive acquisition, the contracting officer must apply the price evaluation preference. As such, the HUBZone firm offer of $103 is more than 10% higher than the $93 offer from the large business. Therefore, the qualified HUBZone firm does not displace the large business as the lowest, responsive, and responsible offeror. In addition, the non-HUBZone small firm with its offer of $100, does not displace the large business because a price evaluation preference cannot be applied to benefit a non-HUBZone small business.
Calculation: $103 Hubzone - $93 other offer =$10.00 Difference / $93 = 10.75%
If the HUBZone vendor had quoted $92 the HUBzone vendor would have only been 9.677% higher and awarded to the HUBZone vendor as the contracting officer must apply the price preference.
Additional Preference Notes for Prime Government Contractors and companies seeking federal government awards:
Company "A" bids on a government contract. If Company "A" demonstrates higher HUBZone
utilization, then Company "A" may then receive up to a (10%) price
preference compared to their other bids because of their utilization of a
HUBZone business entity.
As a federal contractor of $650,000 or more you are
required to spend the following allocations of contract spend -23% Small Business, 3% WBE, 3$ HUBZone 3% SDB, 3% SDVOB. Points are
cumulative so purchasing from National Supply Network, LLC, would afford your organization a cumulative 29% total diversity business dollar spend. The cumulative value adds customer
business solutions for your organization when seeking additional federal government contracts.
What does this mean for our customers?
Any company conducting business with the Federal Government (directly
or indirectly) is required by the government to do business with
HUBZone companies. The total value spend is based on the prime contract
awards value for a fiscal year.
