My answer to What are the technological businesse we can start with little capital?
Answer by Ken Larson:
Service contracting for the federal government is one of the best for small business. The federal government is meeting small business contracting goals. In 2014, for the first time, the feds exceeded the legal requirement of 23% with a 24.9% achievement or $91.7B in contracts to small business. The 23% goal mandated by Congress had not been met at the total government level for years.
The feds are also moving to lowest priced, technically acceptable contracting, driven by budgetary pressures
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.
