Abstract : Prime contract awards to small business firms totaled $26,624 million during Fiscal Year 1987, compared with $26,914 million for the same period last year. Awards to all business firms were 135,340 million during Fiscal Year 1987, compared with 316,497 million for the corresponding period last year. Small business firms received 19.7 percent of prime contract awards made to all business firms during Fiscal Year 1986. Although the year-to-year small business ratio remained unchanged, there were significant differences in the procurement mix of our purchases of supplies and equipment which impacted on the small business participation is seen in the ships, other major hard goods, commercial items, construction and civil functions categories. An increase in the small business rate of participation which offsets this reduction is seen in the missile and space systems and aircraft categories which are not normally favorable to small business as well as in services and petroleum categories which are normally favorable to small business.
