Small Business Accomplishments During the past three fiscal years, there were instances where DOJ did not meet some of its small business goals. The primary reason is that some of our contracts are very large and are beyond the capability of small businesses. Therefore, OSDBU sees its primary function as reviewing planned procurements and identifying procurements that ARE within the capability of small businesses.
Example of Contracts Beyond the Capability of Small Businesses Bureau of Prisons. Manage and Operate two 4,000 bed Criminal Alien Detention Facilities. Estimated Cost $2 Billion over 10 years ($200 Million per Year)
