Small Business Set-Asides
AMS may assist small businesses through solicitation “set-asides.” A set-aside is when AMS designates all or part of a solicitation for competition among approved small business vendors only. AMS currently has set-aside programs in the categories of Small Business and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business. AMS evaluates its purchase programs regularly to identify potential SB set- aside opportunities.
