Small Business Enterprise Registration

Dear Small Business Vendor;

The State of New Jersey’s Small Business Set-Aside program includes goals that 25% of state contract and purchase order dollars be awarded to Small Business Enterprises (SBE). Small Business Enterprise (SBE) registration will add your company’s name to the state listing of vendors eligible to participate in these selected contract offerings.

Standards of Eligibility for “Small Business”

The state small business set-aside program’s criteria set forth in N.J.A.C. 12A:17:46-1.8 is as follows: For goods and services contracts, small businesses with less than 100 full-time employees will be registered in one of the following three categories:

  • Small businesses whose gross revenues do not exceed $500,0007
  • Small businesses whose gross revenues do not exceed $5 million
  • Small businesses whose gross revenues do not exceed $12 million or the applicable federal revenue standards established at 13 CFR 121.201, whichever is higher.

For state construction contracts, small businesses with less than 100 full-time employees will be registered in one of the following three categories:

  • Small business with gross revenues that do not exceed $3 million.
  • Small businesses with gross revenues that do not exceed 50 percent of the applicable annual revenue standards set forth in federal regulation at 13 CFR 121.201 and as maybe adjusted periodically.
  • Small business with gross revenues that do not exceed the applicable annual revenue standards set forth in federal regulation at 13 CFR 121.201, as may be adjusted periodically.

The business must be independently owned and operated, with management being responsible for both its daily and long term operation as well as owning at least 51 percent interest in the business. Must be incorporated or registered to do business in the State and have its principal place of business in New Jersey, defined when:

o 51% or more of its employees work in New Jersey supported by paid New Jersey unemployment taxes.
o 51% or more of its business operations/activities occur in New Jersey supported by income and/or business tax returns.

The business must be a sole proprietorship, partnership or corporation with 100 or fewer employees in full-time positions, not including:

o Seasonal and part-time employees employed for less than 90 days, if seasonal and casual part-time employment are common to that industry and
o Consultants employed under contracts not related to the goods and services, which are the subject of the specific contracts for which the business wants to be eligible as a small business.
