Air Force Forecasting 4th Year Of Declining Small Business Utilization
Officials from the Air Force Small Business Programs Office describe the multi-year decline in utilization of Small Business in contracting opportunities at several AFCEA or MAJCOM Industry day events this Spring. Mr, Eugene Toni, Director, Socio-Economic Programs, SAF/SB, used the following chart on March 8th to describe the projected continued decline in FY12. With half the fiscal year gone, it appears to be a sound projection as there are, apparently, no projected contracting awards to reverse the trend until NETCENTSII Small Business Companion contracts come on-line in FY13.
This slide identifies a reduction in the AF FY12 Small Business Utilization Goal to 16.9%.
