Why utilize Progressive Industries as your HUBZone vendor?

There are many facets to consider in when using a company like Progressive Industries, Inc. as a HUBZone supplier - we've been in business for 30 years, we're certified, qualified, we are employing residents with career opportunities and we give back to the compliance program that helps us and our staff to grow.

Full and open competition contracts must be awarded with a price evaluation preference. The offer of the HUBZone vendor will be considered lower than the offer of a non-HUBZone/non-small business provided that the offer of the HUBZone small business is not more than 10% higher - on orders over $100,000.00.

Sole source HUBZone contracts may be awarded if the contracting officer does not a have a reasonable expectation that 2 or more qualified HUBZone companies will submit bids, determines that the qualified HUBZone small business is responsible, and determines that the contract can be awarded at a fair price. The government estimate cannot exceed $5 million for manufacturing requirements or $3 million for all other requirements.

For example:
Company "A", a federal contractor, bids on a government contract.
Compared to other companies, if Company "A" demonstrates higher HUBZone utilization, the Company "A" may then receive up to a (10%) price preference compared to their other bids because of their utilization of a HUBZone business entity.

If a company wins a Federal contract of $650,000 or more - they are required to spend the following allocations of contract spend - 23% Small Business, 3% WBE, 3% HUBZone, 3% SDB, 3% SDVOB.  Points are cumulative so purchasing from us, would afford your organization 29% - total diversity business dollar spend. This is a value add customer business solution for your organization.

What does this mean to our customers?

Any company conducting business with the Federal Government (directly or indirectly) is required by the government to do business with HUBZone companies. The total value spend is based on the prime contract awards value for a fiscal year.

We at PII our team is committed to encouraging this growth within our corporation and in our community.
