What’s the number-one policy priority for mid-tier companies?

If we’ve learned anything about the new administration, it’s that it’s going to be advocating for change, and that the president has a particular interest in contracting. All of which had me thinking, we hear a lot about the big defense contractors, and getting more small businesses into the federal market. But as a mid-tier company, what is the one thing you’d ask the new president, or the next office of federal procurement policy administrator, to put in place to help your company?

  1. Creating a 750-1,000 employee small [mid?] business size standard and expanding its use.  

    Right now a lot of mid-sized companies really struggle with the gigantic leap from small to large. Many give up and end up selling at discounted prices to larger entities. This fuels consolidation rounds that aren’t healthy for the industry, as, in my admittedly anecdotal experience, mid-sized companies often offer an ideal blend of small and large business strengths.  An expanded size standard would help mid-tier companies weather the transition, enhance their competitiveness and perhaps encourage some to remain independent.
