Disaster Assistance The Administration lends money to help the victims of floods, riots, or other catastrophes repair or replace most disaster-damaged property.

It sets aside suitable Government purchases for competitive award to small business concerns and provides an appeal procedure for a low-bidding small firm whose ability to perform a contract is questioned by the contracting officer.

It cooperates with Federal agencies in setting procurement goals for small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses, and small women-owned businesses for prime contracts and subcontracts.
The Administration maintains a computerized small business source referral system that provides qualified
