SBA ensures that the mutually established cumulative goals for all agencies meet or exceed the government-wide 23% small business goal.

Go to www.ebuy.gsa.gov if you wish to extend. * Consider selecting more sellers if appropriate. * Try to avoid closing an RFQ a weekend or holiday. * Consider doing market research prior to RFQ to find vendors who can meet your requirements. * Consider doing a "sources sought" RFQ to test the market for interested sources. * Review your requirement or SOW to make sure they are clear and complete.
