SBA is revising the size standards for 13 industries in NAICS Sector 22, Utilities, 78 Fed. Reg. 77343.  Specifically, SBA has increased receipts based size standards for three industries and changed the basis for measuring business size from megawatt hours to number of employees for the 10 electric power generation, transmission, and distribution industries.  In addition, SBA is removing Footnote 1 from SBA's Table of Size Standards that applies to all of the NAICS codes in electric power generation, transmission, and distribution.  As part of its ongoing comprehensive size standards review, SBA evaluated all megawatt hour and receipts based size standards for industries in NAICS Sector 22 to determine whether they should be retained or revised. SBA did not review the employee based size standard for Natural Gas Distribution, NAICS 221210, in this rule, but will review it in the near future with other employee based size standards.  This final rule is effective January 22, 2014.

SBA is increasing two small business size standards in NAICS Sector 23, Construction, and retaining the current standards for the 30 remaining industries in that Sector, 78 Fed. Reg. 77334, December 23, 2013.  Specifically, SBA is increasing the size standards for NAICS 237210, Land Subdivision, from $7 million in average annual receipts to $25.5 million, and for Dredging and Surface Cleanup Activities, a sub-industry category (or an “exception”) under NAICS 237990, Other Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction, from $20 million to $25.5 million.  As part of its ongoing comprehensive size standards review, SBA evaluated all size standards in NAICS Sector 23 to determine whether they should be retained or revised.  This final rule is effective January 22, 2014.
