"Following the market crash of 2008, decreasing opportunities and increased competition led many contractors, large and small, to turn to federal government contracting for the first time. These contractors sought a steady new stream of revenue and believed that performance of federal government contracts could provide just that.
Many of these contractors became interested in work "set aside" for small businesses. Each year, the federal government attempts to steer small businesses a certain portion of government contracts by reserving (i.e., setting aside) an ever-growing number of contracts exclusively for those companies considered to be small."
