Why Are Small Federal VARs Up In Arms?
This Isn't The First Time
This isn't the first time that the exception has been under fire. In 2002, when the employee cutoff was 100 for IT VARs, the SBA proposed changing the size standard to 500 employees. That change was shot down in December 2003 and a compromise size standard of 150 employees was put in place under NAICS Code 541519. The revenue size standard has also been on the rise, starting at $19 million, rising to $25 million in 2011 and finally $27.5 million in June of this year.
