BACKGROUND

Over the past 20 years the owner, Terry L. Budge of Interlinked Resources LLC, has had extensive experience with the Large Business Subcontracting Programs.  He was a Commercial Marketing Representative (CMR) for the U.S. Small Business Administration performing Compliance Reviews on the large businesses with subcontracting plans.  He also was a trainer for large businesses.   His experience showed there were numerous issues within the businesses that needed to be addressed. These issues were causing non-compliance problems for the large business.  

 

IN CONCLUSION

In recent years, the government has increased its requirements and audit procedures to insure that businesses are meeting goals and implementing internal procedures to become compliant.  Liquidated Damages, reconsideration of option years on existing contracts where subcontracting plan goals are not being met, and stringent evaluation from a best value format are factors in contract decision making.  Meeting goal and diversity requirements are carrying heavier considerations relating to competitors and have become a large factor in contract evaluation.  These factors mentioned are only a few which makes the Subcontracting Diversity Program for meeting subcontracting plan requirements ever so important, keeping businesses competitive for future contracts.
