Congress and the Department of Defense Reject 809 Panel Recommendation

The 809 Panel is an independent commission created by Congress to modernize and streamline the Defense acquisition system.

 

On April 1, 2019, WIPP signed on to a letter denouncing a recommendation from the Section 809 Panel that the Department of Defense should do away with small business set-asides and institute a 5% price preference instead. WIPP joined 25 other organizations and businesses in signing onto the letter, which was sent to top lawmakers on the House and Senate Armed Services Committees.

As a result of these collaborative efforts, both Congress and the Department of Defense have indicated this recommendation will not be adopted. Thank you to all of the WIPP Members that added their voices and joined our efforts to preserve the small business programs that give WOSBs access to the federal marketplace.
