Update Your Representations and Certifications

The Small Business Association increased the revenue-based industry size standards on July 14, 2014, to account for inflation. Please go into the System for Award Management (SAM) and update your revenue based size standards. In SAM, you will see an exclamation point "!" next to the 'Small Business' value for those NAICS codes impacted in your registration's Reps & Certs. You have to log into SAM, review, and resubmit your registration to apply the new size standard.
