Small Business Program

Brookhaven National Laboratory's Small Business Program serves as a point of contact and advocate for small businesses seeking contract opportunities at the Lab. We are dedicated to impacting the local and national economy by encouraging utilization of small business suppliers that fall into the following categories as defined by the U.S. Department of Energy.

The program is administered by our Small Business Liaison Administrator, who forges and fosters relationships with new and existing vendors to demonstrate our continued commitment to award contracts to small businesses.

Brookhaven Science Associates, the Laboratory's parent entity, continuously develops rosters of small business concerns as potential sources for solicitations and awards. Subcontracts valued between the Micro-Purchase Threshold (currently $10,000) and the Simplified Acquisition Threshold (currently $250,000) may be set aside to small businesses on a sole source basis through awards made at fair market prices, with a fair and reasonable determination.

Small business suppliers should register with the System for Award Management (SAM). The North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) codes is how the federal government defines a small business by dollar threshold or number of employees. Review the Small Business Adminstration Table of Size Standards (PDF) to identify NAICS codes that apply to your business.
