Fact 2: SBA Myth vs. Fact Press Release Debunked by American Small Business League

Fact 2. Large businesses and multinational corporations are listed in the General Services Administration's database as holding small business contracts.

Proof - The Dutch firm Buhrmann NV is a good example. In the SBA response to this point they admit that large corporations have been allowed to acquire small businesses and keep those contracts for the life of the contract, which can be up to 20 years. They refer to this practice as “under federal rules.” What the SBA has failed to mention is the SBA is the agency that initiates federal policy on federal small business contracting policy. They created the federal policy that allowed large businesses to acquire a small business and keep that status for 20 years.
