Last week the Small Business Administration released it’s strategic plan (pdf) for fiscal 2008 through 2012. The agency will be accepting public comments on the document through Sept. 10 via the SBA Web site or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The agency report outlines four strategic goals, which are largely similar to past SBA planning cycles, except it delves into areas that it seeks to improve,” according to an a blog from the Washington Post’s Sharon McLoone.
This a great opportunity America’s 26 million small businesses to speak up and let the SBA know they will no longer tolerate the diversion of federal small business contracts to large corporations.
