General Construction Contractors
Are you a subcontractor searching for federal work? This directory contains federal resources for subcontractors, which are contracted by the prime contractor or other subcontractors. Some entries include a link to Mentor-Protégé Programs, which encourage approved large prime contractors (mentors) to assist eligible small business subcontractors as protégés.
Small Business Reserve Programs
Own a small business? Maryland's Small Business Reserve program consists of three programs to provide greater access and opportunity for small businesses seeking to do business with the state:
The Small Business Reserve Program targets small businesses registered with the Department of General Services where certain procurements may be designated as small business reserve only.
The Small Business Preference Program allows certified small businesses to enjoy a price preference over non-certified small businesses competing for the same contract award, with additional preferences for veteran-owned companies.
The Veteran-Owned Small Business Enterprises Program establishes a 0.5 percent participation goal to increase contracts and subcontracts for veteran-owned companies.
