“I’m happy to report that for the first time in history the federal government has awarded
more than $120 billion in federal contracts and marked the sixth year in a row exceeding our
target milestones for small businesses,” said Acting Administrator Chris Pilkerton. “Through

process. For example, the federal prime and subcontract awarded to small businesses in
