“If unchanged, this policy will create a disincentive for women-owned firms, DBEs, and other small businesses to compete for work for public agencies. It will deprive the government of qualified engineering services, and it will hamper efforts to expand small business and DBE contracting opportunities.”

"Having survived multiple hurricanes during our company's history, including Hurricane Andrew in 1992, the devastation from this pandemic has been far worse.  The interpretation of the FAR Credits Clause (under FAR 31.201-05) would reverse the benefits received from the PPP and could have a negative impact for years to come."

Engineering firms that received PPP loans to help them make it through COVID and save jobs are being forced to give this critical assistance back becasue of a glitch in federal contracting law (the Federal Acquisition Regulations, or FAR).

American relies on its engineers to keep them safe. Small and midsized engineering firms are job creators for their communities that ive back in the work they do to improve the built environment.

Congress should be protecting America's small businesses, not targeting them with unfair contracting rules.  

It's time to fix the broken PPP FAR credits clause.
