The North American Industry Classification System, or NAICS code, assigned to a set-aside government contract determines the size standard for that contract–and can make all the difference when it comes to whether a small business is able to effectively compete.
But contracting officers do not always get it right when it comes to NAICS codes. If you think an agency has assigned the wrong NAICS code to a set-aside contract, you may be able to file a NAICS appeal with the SBA’s Office of Hearings and Appeals, asking SBA OHA to assign the correct NAICS code to the solicitation.
If you want to challenge the NAICS code assigned to a set-aside solicitation, Steven Koprince and Petefish, Immel, Heeb & Hird can help. Drawing on Steven Koprince’s experience with NAICS appeals and set-aside procurements, Petefish can prepare a NAICS appeal on your behalf.
