Small Business Set Aside Program Fiscal Year 2009 Annual Report

December 3, 2009

The Honorable Pat Quinn
Governor of the State of Illinois
207 State House
Springfield, IL 62706

Dear Governor Quinn:

State agencies have diligently pursued contracting opportunities with small businesses during Fiscal Year 2009.

CMS has worked hard to achieve this success, including efforts to:

  • Educate purchasing officials in State agencies about the capabilities of small Illinois firms
  • Continue outreach initiatives through the use of the Sell2Illinois website
  • Promote the program at more than 125 events, conferences and workshops
  • Provide monthly newsletters to inform small companies of State contracting opportunities
  • Designated 64 procurement categories solely for small business competition
  • Set aside all State contracts valued up to $50,000

The number of companies registered in the set-aside program has increased to 5,892 from only 1,925 back in 2005.

The total amount spent and/or awarded by State agencies in FY 09 with Illinois businesses registered with the Small Business Set Aside program is $162,463,654. A detailed breakdown by agency is shown in the attached report. CMS continues to work with the various State agencies to determine (1) a breakdown of the total value of awards made to small businesses pursuant to the set-aside designation in FY09, and (2) the total amount actually spent with small businesses pursuant to the set-aside designation in FY09. As soon as that data is available CMS will file a supplement to the attached report.

At CMS, we will continue to expand competition for State contract opportunities and help small businesses enhance their credentials and grow their revenue – which, in turn, spurs economic growth and job creation throughout our great state.

Sincerely,

James P. Sledge
Director

Executive Summary

The focus of the CMS Small Business Set-Aside Program is on growth:

  • Growing the amount of State agency spending with small Illinois businesses,
  • Encouraging growth in the number of companies registered in the program, and of course
  • Helping entrepreneurs grow their revenues by winning State contracts – which can lead them to expand their capabilities, become more competitive, and create more jobs.

CMS is proud to report that our efforts along with those efforts of other state agencies are driving significant growth in the SBSA program.

By integrating the Small Business Set-Aside program into the statewide procurement network and giving powerful tools to purchasing officials in state agencies, the State of Illinois is continuously increasing the number registered companies, state contracts, and awarded value.

More companies = more participation

The number of participating companies has increased to 5,892 by the end of FY2009.

Participants in the Small Business Set Aside Program have increased 206% from 1,925 in January 2005 to 5,892 in June 2009

More participation = more competition

To open up opportunities for small Illinois companies and increase competition for State contracts, CMS has worked hard to build the set-aside program procurement network and to increase State purchasing officials’ awareness of and participation in this important program.

More value = more competitiveness

More and more small Illinois companies are competing for – and winning – State business, thanks in part to the Small Business Set-Aside Program. And – importantly – participation in the program is working to help small firms build their capacity, establish a track record and enhance their ability to compete.

In addition to the contracts that small companies won through the SBSA program (where they compete only against other small firms), they also won a significant amount of State business while competing outside the program.

To build on this success, CMS continues to seek ways to enhance the SBSA program and to work with State purchasing experts from all agencies, boards and commissions under the Governor to expand competition for State contracts.

To build on this success, we will continue our efforts to help small Illinois businesses grow their revenues, expand their capacity, enhance their credentials and increase their competitiveness – which, in turn, helps spur investment, job creation, and economic growth in communities throughout Illinois.

The total amount spent and/or awarded by State agencies in FY 09 with Illinois businesses registered with the Small Business Set Aside program is $162,463,654.
