SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

13 CFR Part 121

RIN 3245-AE56


Small Business Size Standards; Inflation Adjustment to Size 
Standards

AGENCY: Small Business Administration.

ACTION: Interim final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Small Business Administration (SBA) is adjusting its 
monetary-based size standards, (e.g., receipts, net income, net worth, 
and assets) for the effect of inflation. This action is intended to 
maintain the value of size standards in inflation-adjusted terms. From 
1994 to the third quarter of 2001 the general level of prices in the 
United States increased approximately 15.8% as measured by the chain-
type price index for gross domestic product. This change will restore 
eligibility to firms that may have lost small business status solely 
due to the effect of inflation.
    SBA is adding a provision in its regulations that will require, at 
least once every five years, an assessment of the inflationary impact 
on monetary-based size standards. This periodic review will generally 
ensure that monetary-based standards are current with inflationary 
factors, as appropriate, and that firms will not lose small business 
status due solely to the effect of inflation.

DATES: Effective Date: This regulation becomes effective on February 
22, 2002.
    Applicability Dates: For the purposes of Federal procurements, this 
rule applies to solicitations, except for noncompetitive Section 8(a) 
contracts, issued on or after February 22, 2002. For the purpose of 
noncompetitive Section 8(a) contracting actions, the new size standards 
are applicable to offers of requirements that are accepted by SBA on or 
after February 22, 2002. For purposes of eligibility for economic 
injury disaster loan assistance to small business concerns located in 
disaster areas declared as a result of the terrorist attacks on the 
World Trade Center, New York, New York and the Pentagon, the 
applicability date is September 11, 2001.
    Comment Period: Comments must be received on or before February 22, 
2002. Upon request, SBA will make all public comments available to any 
person or entity.

ADDRESSES: Send comments to Gary M. Jackson, Assistant Administrator 
for Size Standards, U.S. Small Business Administration, 409 Third St., 
SW., Mail Code 6530, Washington, DC 20416; or, via e-mail to

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Inflationary Review

    SBA is adding a provision to its size standards regulations 
requiring that at least once every five years it will assess the impact 
of inflation on its monetary-based size standards. These are size 
standards based on receipts, net income, or other monetary measures. 
Although the provision does not mandate that SBA adjust size standards 
for inflation, it does provide assurances to the public that SBA is 
monitoring inflation and is making a decision whether or not to adjust 
size standards within a reasonable period of time since its last 
inflation adjustment. If SBA decides not to make an inflation 
adjustment after a review, it will continue to monitor inflation on an 
annual basis until such time an adjustment is made. Afterwards, SBA 
will review inflation on a periodic basis, but at least once within 
five years.
    As described in Sec. 121.102(a), SBA examines a number of economic 
characteristics in developing size standards. Inflation is one of many 
considerations in this process. SBA does not believe it is appropriate 
to automatically adjust size standards for inflation since other 
factors influence the setting of size standards. For example, changes 
in industry characteristics or in SBA's policies may render an 
inflation adjustment unnecessary or inappropriate. Under this 
provision, if a significant amount of inflation occurs in the economy 
within a five-year period, SBA will consider an inflation adjustment on 
a more frequent basis. SBA invites the public to comment on this policy 
and to suggest alternative procedures.

Inflationary Adjustment

    SBA is adjusting the monetary-based size standards for the effect 
of inflation in order to restore eligibility to firms that may have 
lost small business status due solely to the effect of inflation. While 
these adjustments are not done on a fixed schedule, prior adjustments 
occurred in 1994 (59 FR 16513, dated April 7, 1994), 1984 (49 FR 5024, 
dated February 9, 1984), and 1975 (40 FR 32824, as corrected by 40 FR 
36310, dated August 5, 1975). The current adjustment is being made at 
this time because inflation has increased by 15.8% since 1994, which is 
sufficient to warrant an increase, and because SBA believes that 
adjustments should be made more frequently than once every ten years, 
as was the case with the last inflationary adjustment.
    Small business size standards are based on the six-digit industry 
codes of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). In 
addition, SBA has several programs that have their own size standards 
(e.g., Surety Bond Guaranteed Assistance, Sale of Government Property, 
etc.). The size standards that SBA is changing are those that are 
receipts based and those based upon other monetary measures.

[[Page 3042]]

Employee-based, production-based, and those established by legislation 
are unaffected by inflation, and thus, not part of this rulemaking. 
Those standards that have been changed since the last inflation 
adjustment in 1994 will be increased accordingly. However, some 
receipt-based standards that were recently increased will not be 
adjusted as the inflation effect has already been factored into the new 
size standard. Full details of this adjustment are contained in the 
table, at the end of the preamble, which lists the affected industries 
according to NAICS.

How Does SBA Adjust Size Standards for Inflation?

    The methodology for adjusting the size standards for inflation was 
as follows:
    1. Selection of an appropriate inflation indicator. We used the 
chain-type price index for gross domestic product (GDP) as published by 
the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), 
which is a broad measure of inflation for the economy as a whole, and 
is available on a quarterly basis. In the past, SBA used the implicit 
price deflator for GDP. Since that time the BEA has produced an 
improved price index, the chain-type price index for GDP, that more 
accurately reflects inflation. This type of index relies on annual 
price weights rather than on the fixed price weight that the implicit 
price deflator relied upon. For more information, see J. Steven 
Landefeld and Robert P. Parker's article ``BEA's Chain Indexes, Time 
Series, and Measures of Long-Term Economic Growth'' in the May 1997 
issue of Survey of Current Business. This article may also be found at 
http://www.bea.doc.gov/bea/an/0597od/maintext.htm, or it may be 
obtained by calling the Government Printing Office at (202) 512-1800.
    2. Selection of a base period. We selected the fourth quarter of 
1993 as the base period since this was the ending period of the last 
inflation adjustment in 1994. The chain-type price index for GDP stood 
at 94.79 at that time.
    3. Selection of an end period. We selected the third quarter of 
2001 as the ending period for this inflation adjustment since it is the 
latest available quarterly data published by BEA. The chain-type price 
index for GDP Deflator stood at 109.8 at that time.
    4. Calculation of inflation. Based on these price indices, 
inflation increased 15.8% between the base and ending periods [((109.8/
94.79) -1.00)  x  100=15.8%].
    5. Application of the inflation adjustment to the monetary-based 
size standards. We multiplied the current size standard by 1.158 and 
rounded to the closest $0.5M.
    6. Which size standards and size eligibility criteria are not being 
changed?
    Certain size standards and size eligibility criteria are not being 
changed in this rule. SBA's reasons are set forth in the chart below.

                                          at this time.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

What Special Situations Exist Regarding the New Inflationary 
Adjustment?

    The size standard for banks is expressed in terms of assets and is 
being set at $150 million. This adjustment represents more than a 15.8% 
increase. The current size standard of $100 million in assets was 
established in 1984 and was not adjusted in the 1994 inflation 
adjustment. The 1994 adjustment increased only the receipt based size 
standards. Monetary standards, other than receipts based, and program 
size standards were not adjusted at that time. This rule adjusts all 
monetary standards.
    The Health Care Group's size standards were increased in December 
2000; the Freight Forwarders size standards were increased in September 
2000; and the Help Supply Services size standards were increased in 
July 2000. These changes, however, were not due to inflation but were 
based on the structure of these industries using data from 1992. Unlike 
other industries described in the table above, these industries were 
adjusted for inflation in 1994. A further increase is being adopted for 
inflation at this time in order to make these size standards current.
    The Construction and Refuse Collection size standards were 
increased in June 2000 to account for inflation through the end of 
1999. Since that time, an additional 4.3% inflation has occurred [the 
chain-type price index for GDP was 105.28 at the fourth quarter of 1999 
((109.8/105.28)-1.00)  x  100=1.043, or 4.3%]. To adjust all size 
standards to the same common period with respect to inflation, the 
Construction and Refuse Collection size standards are being adjusted by 
4.3%. The Dredging size standard of $17 million, however, is not being 
adjusted since that size standard was based on an analysis of specific 
industry cost data and other industry considerations.
    The size standard for sales of government property, currently at $2 
million, is increasing to $6.0 million. This especially large increase 
is being made due to an earlier oversight, in that this size standard 
was not raised from $2 million for inflation in 1984 or 1994. Therefore 
it is being increased to $6.0 million to bring it up to the present-day 
equivalent of $2 million and the most common size standard for the non-
manufacturing industries.

What Other SBA Programs or Activities, Not Defined by the NAICS 
System, Will Have Their Size Standards Adjusted for Inflation?

    The size standards associated with the NAICS Codes are primarily 
used in connection with SBA's financial assistance programs and federal 
procurement programs. SBA and other federal agencies oversee small 
business programs that are not covered by the NAICS Codes or use NAICS 
size standards as an alternative to the program size standard. 
Therefore, SBA will also make inflation adjustments to those programs 
that have any monetary-

[[Page 3043]]

based size standards, except for the SBIC program as discussed above.

Justification for Publication as an Interim Final Rule

    In general, SBA publishes a rule for public comment before issuing 
a final rule, in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act and 
SBA regulations. 5 U.S.C. 553 and 13 CFR 101.108. The Administrative 
Procedure Act provides an exception to this standard rulemaking 
process, however, where an agency finds good cause to adopt a rule 
without prior public participation. 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B). The good 
cause requirement is satisfied when prior public participation is 
impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. Under 
such circumstances, an agency may publish an interim final rule without 
soliciting public comment.
    In enacting the good cause exception to standard rulemaking 
procedures, Congress recognized that emergency situations may arise 
where an agency must issue a rule without public participation. On 
September 16, 2001, the President declared a national emergency as a 
result of the events of September 11, 2001. The events of that day have 
impacted U.S. businesses both in the declared disaster areas and across 
the nation. Most of the affected businesses qualify as small under 
existing SBA size standards and are eligible for SBA and other Federal 
assistance. However, some of the affected businesses had previously 
lost their small size status solely as a result of the inflation that 
has occurred since SBA last revised the size standards in 1994. A 
proposed inflationary adjustment to the size regulations to restore 
eligibility to those businesses was already under development at SBA 
when the tragic events of September 11, 2001, occurred. SBA now 
believes that any delay in the adoption of those inflationary 
adjustments could cause serious harm to those businesses.
    Accordingly, SBA finds that good cause exists to publish this rule 
as an interim final rule in light of the urgent need to make disaster 
loans and other SBA assistance available to businesses that should be 
considered small, but that do not qualify under SBA's existing size 
standards. Advance solicitation of comments for this rulemaking would 
be impracticable and contrary to the public interest, as it would delay 
the delivery of critical assistance to these businesses by a minimum of 
three to six months. Any such delay would be extremely prejudicial to 
the affected businesses. It is likely that some would be forced to 
cease operations before a rule could be promulgated under standard 
notice and comment rulemaking procedures.
    Furthermore, SBA has a statutory obligation to act in the public 
interest in determining eligibility for Federal assistance under the 
Small Business Act. 15 USC 633(d). Pursuant to that authority, SBA has 
determined that it is in the public interest to give immediate effect 
to SBA's current determination of small size status and that it would 
be impracticable to delay such implementation. SBA also notes the 
failure to adopt this rule immediately would work to the detriment of 
many small businesses.
    Although this rule is being published as an interim final rule, 
comments are hereby solicited from interested members of the public. 
These comments must be received on or before February 22, 2002. SBA may 
then consider these comments in making any necessary revisions to these 
regulations.
    Pursuant to Public Law 107-117 (Department of Defense and Emergency 
Supplemental Appropriations for Recovery from and Response to Terrorist 
Attacks on the United States Act), SBA has the authority to apply the 
size standards in this rule for purposes of eligibility for economic 
injury disaster loans to small businesses located in the disaster areas 
declared as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. 
Accordingly, for that purpose only, SBA is applying these size 
standards as if they were in effect on September 11, 2001.

Compliance With Executive Orders 12866, 12988, and 13132, the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), and the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Ch. 35)

    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) reviewed this rule as a 
``significant regulatory action'' under section 3(f) under Executive 
Order 12866.
    For purposes of Executive Order 12988, SBA has determined that this 
rule is drafted, to the extent practicable, in accordance with the 
standards set forth in section 3 of that Order.
    This regulation will not have substantial direct effects on the 
States, on the relationship between the national government and the 
States, or on the distribution of power and responsibility among the 
various levels of government. Therefore, under Executive Order 13132, 
SBA determines that this rule does not have sufficient federalism 
implications to warrant the preparation of a Federalism Assessment.
    This rule does not impose any new information collection 
requirements from SBA which require the approval by OMB under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520.
    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), this rule may have a 
significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. 
Immediately below, SBA sets forth an initial regulatory flexibility 
analysis (IRFA) of this rule addressing

[[Page 3044]]

the reasons and objectives of the rule; SBA's description and estimate 
of the number of small entities to which the rule will apply; the 
projected reporting, record keeping, and other compliance requirements 
of the rule; the relevant Federal rules which may duplicate, overlap or 
conflict with the rule; and alternatives considered by SBA.

(1) What Is Reason for This Action?

    As discussed in the supplemental information, the purpose of this 
rule is to restore the small business eligibility of businesses who 
have grown above the size standard due to inflation rather than to an 
expansion of business activity. A review of the latest available 
inflation indices show inflation that has increased a sufficient amount 
to warrant an increase to the current receipt-based size standards.

(2) What Are the Objectives and Legal Basis for the Rule?

    The revision to the receipt-based size standards for inflation more 
appropriately defines the size of businesses in these industries that 
SBA believes should be eligible for Federal small business assistance 
programs. Section 3(a) of the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 632(a)) 
gives SBA the authority to establish and change size standards.

(3) What Is SBA's Description and Estimate of the Number of Small 
Entities to Which the Rule Will Apply?

    SBA estimates that there will be approximately 8,600 newly 
designated small business, distributed as follows by NAICS Sectors and 
Subsectors:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Source: 1997 Economic Census, U.S. Census Bureau, Special Tabulation for SBA. Sales estimates restated to 2000
  dollars.

    The percentage increase in the number of small businesses that will 
result from this rule, compared to the existing base of small 
businesses, is estimated to be about two-tenths of one percent. The 
special tabulation of the 1997 Economic Census for SBA reports 
5,082,970 total firms in the U.S. economy as defined by this census. We 
estimate that 98.4% of all businesses in the U.S. are currently defined 
as small under the existing size standards. Under the rule, this will 
increase to 98.6%. The percentage increase of annual sales in the U.S. 
economy attributed to these new small businesses is likely to be 
approximately seven-tenths of one percent. This will be applied to a 
base of 28.6%. Thus under this proposal the percent of sales attributed 
to firms defined as small businesses in the U.S. is likely to increase 
to 29.3%.
    Description of Potential Benefits of the Rule: The most significant 
benefit to businesses obtaining small business status as a result of 
this rule is their eligibility for Federal small business assistance 
programs. These include SBA's financial assistance programs and Federal 
procurement preference programs for small businesses, 8(a) firms, small 
disadvantaged businesses, and small businesses located in Historically 
Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone).
    SBA estimates that approximately $46.2 million of additional 
Federal contracts will be awarded to firms becoming newly designated 
small businesses. As stated above, the percentage increase of annual 
sales attributed to these new small businesses is likely to be 
approximately seven-tenths of one percent. SBA applied this factor to 
the Fiscal Year 1999 total small business prime contractor initial 
awards which totaled $6.6 billion [$6.6B x .007 (.7 of 1%) = $46.2M].
    We view the additional amount of contract activity as the potential 
amount of transfer from non-small to newly designated small firms. This 
does not represent the creation of new contracting activity by the 
Federal government, merely a possible reallocation or transfer to 
different sized firms.
    Under the SBA's 7(a) Guaranteed Loan Program and Certified 
Development Company (504) Program, SBA estimates that approximately $17 
million in new Federal loan guarantees could be made to these newly 
defined small businesses. This represents 0.19% of the $9 billion in 
loans that were guaranteed by the SBA under these two financial 
programs to firms in industries with monetary-based size standards.
    Considering that the average size of firms gaining small business 
status will be $6 million, demand for assistance will likely be less 
than the overall participation rate for SBA loans among firms of all 
sizes. In any given year less than 1% of all small businesses receive 
SBA financing. Since larger firms are less likely to seek SBA financial 
assistance, we believe that no more than one-half of 1% of the 8,610 
newly designated small businesses would seek SBA assistance. SBA 
estimates that approximately 45 out of the 8,610 firms would seek SBA 
financing. SBA financial assistance recipients of this size on average 
obtain assistance worth $375,000, so the impact in terms of new loans 
generated is estimated to be $17 million per year.

(4) Will This Rule Impose Any Additional Reporting or Record Keeping 
Requirements on Small Businesses?

    This rule does not impose any new information collection 
requirements from SBA which require approval by OMB under the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1980, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520. A new size standard does 
not impose any additional reporting, record keeping or compliance 
requirements on small entities. Increasing size standards expands 
access to SBA programs that assist small businesses, but does not 
impose a regulatory burden as they

[[Page 3045]]

neither regulate nor control business behavior.

(5) What Are the Relevant Federal Rules Which May Duplicate, Overlap or 
Conflict With This Rule?

    This rule overlaps other Federal rules that use SBA's size 
standards to define a small business. Under Sec. 632(a)(2)(C) of the 
Small Business Act, unless specifically authorized by statute, Federal 
agencies must use SBA's size standards to define a small business. In 
1995, SBA published in the Federal Register a list of statutory and 
regulatory size standards that identified the application of SBA's size 
standards as well as other size standards used by Federal agencies (60 
FR 57988-57991, dated November 24, 1995). SBA is not aware of any 
Federal rule that would duplicate or conflict with establishing size 
standards.
    SBA cannot estimate the impact of a size standard change on each 
and every Federal program that uses its size standards. In cases where 
an SBA's size standard is not appropriate, the Small Business Act and 
SBA's regulations allow Federal agencies to develop different size 
standards with the approval of the SBA Administrator (13 CFR 121.902). 
For purposes of a regulatory flexibility analysis, agencies must 
consult with SBA's Office of Advocacy when developing different size 
standards for their programs.

(6) What Alternatives Did SBA Consider?

    SBA considered two alternatives to this rule. First, to wait until 
inflation has increased a greater amount before proposing an adjustment 
to receipt-based size standards. Previous inflation adjustments ranged 
between 48 percent to 100 percent. SBA believes that more frequent 
adjustments are necessary since smaller amounts of inflation can change 
the small business eligibility of a large number of businesses.
    Second, SBA considered a policy of automatically adjusting size 
standards for inflation on a fixed schedule. SBA believes inflation 
must be closely monitored to assess the impact of inflation on size 
standards. Automatic adjustments may lead to inappropriate changes to 
size standards and prevent the Agency from taking into consideration 
other factors that bear on the review of size standards, such as 
changes in industry structure or Administration policies. Furthermore, 
an automatic adjustment could require SBA to make insignificant changes 
(i.e., 1 percent) or to wait a longer period of time than necessary to 
adjust size standards if inflation rapidly increases.

PART 121--SMALL BUSINESS SIZE REGULATIONS

    1. The authority citation for part 121 continues to read as 
follows:

    Authority: 15 U.S.C. 632(a), 634(b)(6), 637(a), 644(c), and 
662(5); and sec. 304, Pub. L. 103-403,108 Stat. 4175, 4188.

    2. Amend Sec. 121.102 as follows:
    a. Redesignate the current paragraph (c) as (d).
    b. Add new paragraph (c) to read as follows:


Sec. 121.102  How does SBA establish size standards?

* * * * *
    (c) As part of its review of size standards, SBA's Office of Size 
Standards will examine the impact of inflation on monetary-based size 
standards (e.g., receipts, net income, assets) at least once every five 
years and submit a report to the Administrator or designee. If SBA 
finds that inflation has significantly eroded the value of the 
monetary-based size standards, it will issue a proposed rule to 
increase size standards.

    3. In Sec. 121.201, revise the referenced NAICS Codes and size 
standards in the table ``Size Standards by NAICS Industry'' under 
Sectors 11, 21 through 23, 44-45, 48-49, 51 through 56, 61, 62, 71, 72, 
and 81 to read as follows:
