S. Federal agencies have more than 3% of their budget in the form of prime contracts which must be awarded to HUBZone firms like Aerocet, and agencies can be penalized if they don’t meet the requirement. Our capabilities are documented in our portal profile, the System for Award Management (SAM) and they Dynamic Small Business Search (DSMS) databases. We have made these investments to work as a prime contractor for the various federal agencies and we look forward to fulfilling the intent of HubZone employment goals as contracts are awarded through this broad new channel.”
