Answer by Ken Larson:

Lowest Price Technically Acceptable (LPTA)

Small business is uniquely qualified for this type of work, particularly in the services sector, due to lower overhead and G&A rates, as well as agility in work force development.

Government set-aside procurement is on the rise and becoming recognized by many agencies as a way to remove stodgy, entrenched companies when long term contracts come up for renewal.

The process can dramatically grow smaller firms.
