Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Small Business Administration's (SBA) new rule on small business size standards for contractors. GAO noted that: (1) the final rule would establish new small business size standards for general building and heavy construction contractors, with certain exceptions; (2) the increases in the size standards are designed to adjust for inflation since the original standards became effective; and (3) SBA complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
