SBA Finalizes Rule Adopting Changes to Contracting Program for Women-Owned Small Businesses

An interim final rule published in the Federal Register and effective immediately will amend regulations to the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contract Program allowing for greater access to federal contracting opportunities for women-owned businesses. This is the result of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 (NDAA) signed in January. The interim final rule removes the anticipated award price of the contract thresholds for women-owned small businesses (WOSB) and economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSB). Instead, this will allow them greater access to federal contracting opportunities without limitations to the size of the contract.   The rule can be accessed at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-05-07/html/2013-10841.htm and comments can ...

Alternative Lending Sources are Loaning Money!

Thirty years ago when a small business needed to borrow money, an owner simply went to their local community bank and asked for a loan. Often, a handshake closes a loan. After which, the borrower either paid it back in a lump sum or by making term payments. The rule of 78s was used to compute interest on a 360-day basis. The process created a “one size fits all” loan. Today’s world is quite different, as big banks have consolidated and many community banks have disappeared. FICO credit scoring and loan modeling has mostly replaced the relationship based loan officer. ... Read More

The survey of 1,200 small business owners was conducted by the Guardian Life Insurance Company of America. In other words, owners of healthy companies and of firms on the ... Read More


Lenders Positive About 2011 in Face of Dim Economic Outlook

“I am far more optimistic looking ahead to 2011 than I was in 2010,” says Dan Karas, managing director at Marquette Finance Co. The first six months of 2010 were “incredibly challenging,” he says, as clients worked to improve their balance sheets amid a sluggish economic recovery. “We have not seen a significant uptick in sales across our portfolio,” says James Cannella, president of asset-based lending at Huntington National Bank. “Our clients have cut expenses to return to profitability, but we don’t see any trend to gains in revenue.” While 2010 was what Jon Anselma, managing partner at Paragon Financial ...
