(Last Modified:07-Jun-2017)




The Certificate of Competency Program (COC) administered by the Small Business Administration (SBA) is authorized by Statutory Authority: Section 8(b)(7) OF THE SMALL BUSINESS ACT OF 1953 and Regulatory Implementation: Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), 13 Part 125.5; Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)48 Part 19.6. The Certificate of Competency Program allows a small business to appeal a contracting officer's (CO) determination that it is unable to fulfill the requirements of a specific government contract on which it is the apparent low bidder. The COC is an appeal procedure available to the apparent successful small business offeror which gives the small business the opportunity to demonstrate that it has the capability to perform on a specific Federal prime government contract. This is not a Certificate of Compliance or Conformance, which contractors furnish to certify product conformance and quality. It is a determination that a firm is responsible or nonresponsible to perform a specific government contract.
