The purpose of this operating instruction is to establish a basic small business program for the Canaveral division in accordance with Martin Co. Materiel Instruction II-1.




A small business concern is one that is independently owned and operated, is not dominant in the field of operation in which it is bidding and, with its affiliates, employs not more than 500 employees or is certified as a small business company by the Small Business Administration.


A fair portion of the total purchases and contracts for suppliers and services for the Department of Defense will be placed with small business concerns. This will be insured through the following steps:

A. The list of suppliers made available to the Canaveral division will indicate whether or not the suppliers meet the requirements of a small business


B. The materiel department shall compile small business reports in accordance with Martin Co. Materiel Instruction II-1.

C. The Canaveral division shall assure the equitable opportunity for small businesses to compete in bidding by :

1. Planning procurement consistent with contract requirements to encourage participation by small business concerns.

2. Soliciting quotations utilizing available records of small business concerns, and allowing small and large business concerns sufficient time to submit bids.

3. Making sufficient allowances, consistent with contract requirements, for appropriate economic quantities and reasonable delivery schedule to encourage small business firms to compete.

4. Making available to technically and financially competent small business concerns applicable specifications, drawings, and other pertinent data to enable them to intelligently prepare bids.

D. Appropriate purchase orders shall have incorporated a small business clause essentially the same as that included in related prime contracts.

E. When negotiating large purchase orders which could offer small business subcontracting opportunities, suppliers will be requested to establish and conduct defense subcontracting small business programs. If the suppliers agree to conduct defense subcontracting small business programs, the request for them to do so shall become a provision of the purchase order. G. Q. BUTLER, Director, Materiel Department.
