SMALL BUSINESS PROGRAM OFFICERS
Finding high performing small businesses can be a challenge. With thousands upon thousands, it is important to find out more information about small businesses to advocate and outreach to them. As agencies have subcontracting goals, finding the ones that can perform is paramount. FEDMINE.US provides real time data about small businesses–including new awards and graduating 8(a)s.

Each agency in the federal government submits its goaling reports to the SBA. The SBA was charged with tracking each department’s goals within each Agency, down to the contracting office. Every year, the agencies are required to submit their goaling numbers for the previous year by May 31. Given the volume of data, they needed an independent verification and validation tool to use internally on a daily basis. Working closely with the SBA, FEDMinE designed a reporting suite that algorithmically calculates Goaling numbers in real-time using SBA and DoD Goaling methodologies consistent with FAR rules. It provides breakdown by specific categories down to Command (for DoD components such as Air Force, Army and Navy Commands) and DoDAAC (for DoD MAJCOM, PEO levels). This report is now in wide use by SBA for reports to congress and various constituents and Capitol Hill committees.
