SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The 8(a) BD Program is designed to enhance the business development of small business concerns owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals whose ability to compete in the free enterprise system has been impaired due to diminished capital and credit opportunities as compared to others in the same or similar line of business. In an effort to increase the 8(a) BD Program's accessibility to socially and economically disadvantaged small business owners, and reduce the burden on these small businesses, SBA has amended Form 1010-BUsiness (8(a)Business Development Program Application) and Form 1010-Individual (Individual Information). SBA has clarified and simplified instructions, and streamlined the information collected from applicants and participants, including eliminating information that was deemed unnecessary or could be obtained from other sources available to the agency.

Title: 8(A) SDB Paper and Electronic Application.

Abstract: The Small Business Administration needs to collect this information to determine an applicant's eligibility for admission into the 8(a) Business Development (BD) Program and for continued eligibility to participate in the Program. SBA also uses some of the information for an annual report to Congress on the 8(a) BD Program. Respondents can be individuals and firms making applications to the 8(a) BD Program, or respondents can be individuals and Participant firms revising information related to the 8(a) BD Program Annual Review.

Description of Respondents: Applicants for and Participants in the 8(a) Business Development Program.
