Abstract : This study reviewed and evaluated government, industry, and private source listing ventures to ascertain some means for enhancing the involvement of small and disadvantaged small business owners in government and prime contracting opportunities to a greater extent than the present. It suggests that the state of the source list science is improving with technology and organization on behalf of more small and disadvantaged firms, and that a merger of some existing systems would optimize capability. The Dunn and Bradstreet system was found to be the most complete, but in a development stage. A merger with the more mature PASS System was suggested. (Author)
