Attorneys Jon Williams and Cy Alba recently wrote a wrote a letter to the House Small Business Committee to address a new rule from the U.S. Small Business Administration that we believe is contrary to the Small Business Act, as amended by the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act. This new rule also unfairly and unnecessarily increases the regulatory burden for small businesses in the information technology value-added reseller (“lTVAR”) industry. We have heard from many small businesses and have talked with agency procuring officials who are concerned about how to implement this rule and the adverse affect it will have on small business set-aside procurements for lTVARs.
