Small Business Standard Agreement

Some examples of commercial issues, often used as the subject matter of business contracts, are as follows: in addition to the impact on federal contracts, the SBA also examines the impact on the SBA`s credit programmes, both in the current and revised size standards. There are laws that protect consumers from unfair contract terms when they have had little or no opportunity to negotiate with companies (e.g. B model contracts). The Agency is closely monitoring the evolution of the pandemic as well as the economic situation and recovery. The consequences of the first public reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the various measures taken by the government to contain it (e.g. B home stay injunctions, social distancing, etc.) have led to the current economic decline. A large number of economic indicators, such as gross domestic product (GDP) and the unemployment rate, show that this recession is far worse than any other recession since World War II. GDP fell by almost 5% and personal consumption of goods and services fell by 6.9% in the first quarter of 2020. The third estimate of the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) for the second quarter of 2020 shows that GDP decreased by 31.4% and personal consumption of goods and services by 33.2%; In August 2020, staff income fell by 2.7%, after increasing slightly in June (1.2%) and July 2020 (0.5%). In September 2020, the unemployment rate fell to 7.9% compared to August 2020, when the unemployment rate was 8.4%. After 14.7% in April 2020, the unemployment rate fell from May to September 2020, but remains higher than in February 2020, when it was 3.5%. For the month of September 2020, the non-agricultural wage bill increased by 661,000 compared to August 2020, but the decline in employment since February 2020 is about 10.5 million. In particular, for the sectors assessed in this proposed rule, the unemployment rate in September 2020 was 5.1% for the education and health sectors, the unemployment rate was 19.0% for the leisure and hospitality sector and the other services sector.

In September 2019, unemployment rates in these sectors were 2.2%, 4.8% and 3.2% respectively. The Federal Reserve Board`s latest report on monetary policy shows that small businesses in these sectors are generally the most affected. [1] As noted above, the BSA of 145 receipt-based size standards in Sectors 61, 62, 71, 72 and 81, which are generally reviewed, proposes, based on analyses of the latest industry and federal market data, to increase 70 size standards in this rule. Below are descriptions of the benefits, costs, and transfer effects of these proposed increases in size standards. . . .
