The Small Business Administration's (SBA) management assistance program was surveyed at the San Francisco District Office to evaluate the quality of the assistance rendered in helping persons to succeed as business owners.

The survey was terminated because sufficient financial data on management assistance clients were not on file although borrowers' financial statements are required under the loan agreements signed by the business owners. Because it has not obtained financial information from its management assistance clients, SBA lacks the means to evaluate its management assistance efforts and the needs of its clients for follow-on assistance. Until more financial information is obtained and analyzed in a systematic manner, the management assistance program cannot achieve its full potential. SBA should pursue the collection and analysis of the business data necessary to identify management needs of clients and to measure the effectiveness of assistance provided.
