Small Business Size Standards: Adjustment of Monetary-Based Size Standards for Inflation


U.S. Small Business Administration.


Interim final rule with request for comments.


The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA or Agency) is adjusting the monetary-based industry size standards (i.e., receipts- and assets-based) for inflation that has occurred since the last adjustment in 2014. These size standards will be reviewed again as part of the ongoing second 5-year review of size standards, as mandated by the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 (Jobs Act). Also adjusted for inflation are receipts-based size standards that apply to sales or leases of Government property and stockpile purchases.


Effective Date: This rule is effective August 19, 2019.

Comment Date: Comments must be received on or before September 16, 2019.
