Many contracts are given to small businesses because it’s the law—but also because it helps stimulate the economy and create jobs. For a roofing contractor, a small business is defined as having an annual sales limit of $14 million ($33.5 million for a general construction contractor). There are six basic small business designations and the government routinely reserves contracts for these categories. To become a small business government contractor candidate, at least 51% of your company must be owned by one of the groups or applicable to one of the categories listed below.
