The Office of Advocacy examines the role of small business in the economy and publishes research on a wide range of topics each year. These studies educate policymakers and small business advocates, and they expand knowledge of small business challenges and contributions.
Advocacy recently issued a Request for Quotations (RFQ) seeking proposals for new research in four areas.
To view the complete solicitations, visit FedBizOpps (www.fbo.gov) and search for the solicitation numbers listed next to the topics in the table on page 3. Research is to be conducted in the year following the contract award. These RFQs are for competitive contracts and are not research grants.
The deadline for submitting proposals is Friday, February 8, at 4 p.m. Eastern time. See the table below for descriptions of the RFQ proposal topics and the solicitation numbers.
