Advantages of being HubZone Certified

HubZone Certification Qualifications

Sole Source Awards – Sole Source Law decrees that a percentage of dollars for federal prime contracts must be awarded directly to HUBZone organizations without competition.

Set-Aside Awards – Set-aside contracts give HUBZone registered small businesses access to restricted work opportunities that only they can bid and compete for.

Price Preferences – HUBZone small businesses also receive a preferential 10% price evaluation when competing for full and open-bid contracts available to the rest of the federal marketplace.

Subcontracting Options – HUBZone small businesses may subcontract on the jobs they are awarded. That way organizations operating inside HUBZones are never restricted from earning federal work opportunities due to a limited size.

Private Sector Opportunities – In addition to gaining eligibility for federal benefits, HUBZone certification also grants organizations access to more exclusive contracting opportunities in the private sector.
