On July 26, 2016, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) issued extensive amendments to its regulations to implement provisions of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 and the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013. The amendments are extensive, and the more critical amendments relate to (a) the mentor-protégé program, (b) rules associated with affiliation, (c) disadvantaged business status, and (d) the Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone) program. In the alert at the link, my co-authors, Larry Prosen and Dan Broderick, and I provide a brief overview of the major changes made to each part of the SBA regulations. Over the coming weeks, we will release additional alerts that take a deeper dive into the amendments impacting the individual SBA programs.
