Small Business Partnership Program
Our Commitment to Small Business Community
Lobar, Inc’s ability to successfully meet projected small business (SB) utilization goals stems from our corporate commitment to maximize SB participation opportunities. We typically manage each assigned contract (with or without established goals) like a “contract” to ensure maximum SB participation. Lobar’s project managers analyze project requirements at the outset of each project to identify scopes of work (“SOW”s) and services appropriate for SB participation.
Our SB program commitment is demonstrated by established company practices, procurement policies, monitoring procedures, and approved subcontracting clauses, as well as the advocacy and support of senior management. Lobar’s Socioeconomic Participation Program is based upon:
- Enforceable Teaming Agreements with SB Subcontractors
- Utilization of prequalified SB pool of construction related subcontractors and suppliers
- Association with specific SB firms within specific work areas
- Proven commitment to using SBs, exemplified by award-winning corporate history of SB utilization
