  1. Hey everyone! Background: I'm fairly new to the contracting world and working in a recently-large prime contractor in the healthcare sector. I've been helping prepare ourselves for our first bid season as a Large contractor and now under the pressure of compliance with FAR 52,219-8 & -9, etc. For a while I was under the impression that our small business subcontracting goals were to subcontract out roughly 30% of the total contract dollars to smalls...I am recently been corrected (and now it I see my mistake everywhere) that we are only under an obligation that 30% of our dollars subcontracted must go to smalls. First off, my new understanding is correct, right? Goals are in terms of total subcontracting dollars? (Ie. $1,000,000 contract, $100,000 subcontracted, $30,000 to smalls). Second, do any of you have any general practice tips as far as what percentages of TOTAL dollars should be subcontracted? I know that is extremely tough to even ballpark given the various subject matter and scope of Prime contracts...but wasn't sure if there was sort of a "floor" that you want to avoid, for example, subbing less than 10% of your total dollars out if you want to keep the SBA away. Thanks for your time! Like I said, I'm new to this whole thing (as is my company) so any help is appreciated. nebraska
