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 federal government defines "small business" by dollar threshold or number of employees using the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS). Review the Small Business Administration Table of Size Standards (PDF) to identify NAICS codes that apply to your business. Small business suppliers should register below with both the Lab’s Small Business Vendor Registry and the System for Award Management through SAM.gov.
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.
Contact our Small Business Liaison Administrator to discuss potential opportunities.
