REPORT

CHAPTER I. INTRODUCTION

A. COMMISSION ON GOVERNMENT PROCUREMENT The Subcommittee on Government Procurement conducted hearings on May 17 and 181 and October 10 and 11, 1973,’ to examine, among other things, several of the recommendations of the Commission on Government Procurement. The Subcommittee was interested in considering those recommendations by the Commission which appeared to have the greatest concern for the small business contracting community. Four recommendations were selected-two from the small business chapter of the Commission report, and two others of general and far-reaching application to the procurement process, but with particular aspects of small business interest. They are:

COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION NO. 47, PART A

Procurement from Small Business

Establish new standards for annually measuring the performance of procuring agencies and their prime contractors in using small business. Standards for measuring performance, including the sound use of set-aside techniques, should assess progress made in assisting small businesses to obtain a

fair proportion of awards-not just statistical percentages. 1 Hearings before the Subcommittee on Government Procurement, Senate Small Business Committee, on selected Recommendations of the Commission on Government Procurement and Procurement from Small Business in Labor Surplus Areas, 93rd Cong., 1st Sess., May 17 and 18, 1973.
