Subcontracting Opportunities & Information on Prime Contractors:

When a large company (prime contractor) wins an award valued over $650,000 (and any construction contract in value of $1,500,000), it must have a small business plan included in its proposal. This small business plan says the company shall make a good faith effort to subcontract to small businesses and to the various subcategories of small business to the maximum extent it can.

NOTE: FAR part 19 and 52 outline the requirements for preparing a small business plan - prepared by large companies only. Small businesses do not have to complete a small business plan.
